He attended the Institute during the 1990s, graduating in 1995, and subsequently teaching and providing private tuition. In the late 1990s he joined Mumbo's Brain with former Megadeth guitarist Chris Poland, and also performed on Poland's solo album Chasing the Sun.

In 2002, DiCosmo worked with Evanescence on their debut album Fallen, which was released the following year. The album produced a number of hit singles featuring him on bass including Bring Me to Life and My Immortal. Between 2007 and 2009, DiCosmo played bass guitar as a member of Thin Lizzy and later toured with ex-Toto frontman Bobby Kimball and returned to session work with artists such as Ronnie Montrose and Jason Bonham.
