Guest Biography: 

FRANCESCO DICOSMO

Having been influenced by a musical family, I began singing at age five & I started teaching myself bass at age fourteen when I was inspired by various artists in Rock, Blues, R&B, Funk, Fusion, Jazz and Progressive Rock. I studied music theory with Schuyler Collins from the Berkley School of Music, and voice with master vocal technician Nikki Cukor in New York. I started playing bass and singing professionally at 15 for several top drawing bands in the Northeastern Pennsylvania & east coast club circuits. The bands Black Water, Quest and Rogue were some of the best vocal intensive Rock show bands that I had the opportunity to cut my teeth with in the NorthEast.

I then moved on to Los Angeles, to further pursue my music career. I was one of the top ten bass players picked by

BILLY SHEEHAN for the MUSICIANS INSTITUTE Scholarship Contest. I then attended the world renowned school, graduating at the top of the class with the

M.I. VOCATIONAL HONORS AWARD & the HUMAN RELATIONS AWARD in 1995.

This led me to assistant teaching and private instruction at M.I. for the next 2 years. Reputation and experience led me to audition for

STEVE VAI, DWEEZIL ZAPPA, the NEW RADICALS, VONDA SHEPPARD and MEGADETH’S, amazing guitarist CHRIS POLAND,

with whom I joined the eclectic, dark, Alt-Rock band,

MUMBO’S BRAIN, and with whom I co-wrote & recorded the instrumental Rock/Funk/Jazz/Fusion record called,
“ CHASING THE SUN ”.

Having caught the attention of label exec Fred Brown at Warner Bros, I was referred to work with,

STAN WHITTAKER, former guitarist/vocalist for PETER GABRIEL and famous Prog-Rock band HAPPY THE MAN, with whom formed the Prog/Pop/Rock band
SPIRIT NOISE with my bro & drummer RICO DICOSMO.

Since then I’ve played with Warner Bros recording artist,

TRACY DAWN, alternative L.A. Indie rock band, PUSH
and played bass on co-produced and arranged an album for Ft. Worth, Texas singer/songwriter.
ELIZABETH WILLS with producer CHRIS VAN TASSELL. I recorded and co-produced an EP with the band

SPECTRUM/WORLDS APART with producer BARRY FAZMAN, recorded the album

“ CONFESSIONS ” with the band JADED, and recorded the album

” GOOD VIBRATIONS ” with L.A.’s Rock/Reggae/Rap/Pop Band SHAKA BUKU. I also wrote and recorded songs with

JAMIE GREEN (named by L.A. Music Awards as Best Unsigned Artist) for her new album ” TRUCE “. And then recorded the hit album:

“FALLEN” by, EVANESCENCE, with producer DAVE FORTMAN
of which the single,

“BRING ME TO LIFE” and was #1 on BILLBOARD’S MODERN ROCK CHART for several weeks.

“ FALLEN “ also won 2 GRAMMY AWARDS for
BEST ROCK PERFORMANCE & BEST NEW ARTIST at the

46TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS in 2004 & for which I recieved
two Grammy Certifications for.

“ FALLEN “ sold over 14 MILLION COPIES WORLDWIDE. (More @ Grammy.com) Two tracks from ” FALLEN ” also made it on the soundtrack of the comic book movie ” DAREDEVIL” .

Recently, I’ve had the honor & priveledge of spending the last 2 years as the new bassist for the Quintessential Classic Rock Band,

THIN LIZZY, playing with world class guitarist/vocalist JOHN SYKES, amazing original Thin Lizzy guitarist SCOTT GORHAM, and Drumming legend, TOMMY ALDRIDGE. Its been a total blast playing the awesome songs and bass lines of the late great
PHIL LYNOTT ! ! !

Last year I also had the priveledge of doing some gigs in Russia with one of my fav singers of all time, BOBBY KIMBALL of TOTO,
with my friends and killer musicians JAY GORE on guitar,
ALEX ALESSANDRONI on Keys & ROBIN DIMAGGIO on Drums!

I’ve recently done a record with San Diego singer/songwriter

ROB CARONA & recorded the awesome CD “THIS IS THE LIFE”.

MOST RECENTLY I’ve teamed up with TTM GUITARS from Palm Desert CA and am designing a NEW LINE of 4, 5 and 6 STRING BASS GUITARS with unique design features. Protoypes are now being built with working models to be expected later this year.

Life Changes Show with Filippo Voltaggio
Show Host: 
Filippo Voltaggio

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
