In 1994, Cosmo was featured as the sole lead vocalist on the platinum Boston album Walk On, which reached #7 on the Billboard Charts and produced three hit singles, including “I Need Your Love”, which climbed to #4 on the Mainstream Rock Chart, and “Walk On” which reached #14.
Upon Brad Delp’s return to Boston for the concert tour (Delp never missed a Boston tour prior to his death in 2007), the two shared vocals in concert, where Delp said Cosmo covered “the really tough high parts”.
In 1997, Cosmo was again featured on two of the songs on Boston’s ‘Greatest Hits’ album, and took an even larger role in the 2002 album Corporate America, with the addition of co-production to his credits as vocalist. He sang lead vocals on five of the album’s songs and played guitar on one track as well.
Cosmo performed in Boston tours from 1994 to 2004, and currently performs in the band Cosmo with his son, Anton Cosmo.
He also sings in the World Classic Rockers. Cosmo released his first album with his band in 2006, titled Alien.
