  • Fran Cosmo was first featured on Boston guitarist Barry Goudreau's self titled solo album in 1980, a prelude to the formation of Orion the Hunter in 1983. Orion the Hunter released an album in 1984 on Columbia Records, which yielded a hit single "So You Ran", featuring the sky-high vocals which prompted Cosmo's entrance to Boston in 1993.

    In 1994, Cosmo was featured as the sole lead vocalist on the Multi-Platinum Boston disc Walk On, which reached #7 on the Billboard Charts and produced three hit singles that sold over 3 million records worldwide, including "I Need Your Love", which climbed to #4 Mainstream Rock Chart, in spite of the growing popularity of the Seattle-Driven grunge movement.

    Upon Delp's return to Boston, the two shared lead vocals in concert. In 1997, Cosmo was again featured 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. Cosmo performed lead vocals on all of the Boston tours from 1994 to 2004, and currently performs in his solo band Cosmo with his son Anthony Cosmo who also wrote produced and performed on both 2003 and 2004 headlining tours with BOSTON.

    Anthony Cosmo's musical career started at a very early age. His Father Fran Cosmo is recognized as one of the best rock and roll singers in the history of rock and roll. Fran was the Lead singer of the Band BOSTON for nearly nineteen years next to Music Icon Brad Delp in that time Anthony began his journey as a guitarist and songwriter. Eventually Anthony became a member of the band as well. He wrote Produced and performed three tracks of the CA Album released in 2003 that reached number 24 on Billboards top 40 with a 2003-2004 Headline Tour across America.

    Recently writing and producing the album "Alien" with Fran on vocals was released with Frontiers Records and hailed as the top Melodic Records of 2006 among My Chemical Romance. In 2007 Anthony decided to write perform produce and sing on his debut Record The Casting that was released digitally all over the world. Now in 2008 Anthony has written his second solo Album titled HERO that will be released through SONY/BMG in Early 2009.
