Cicero was born in Long Island, but when his parents divorced, he moved to Livingston, Scotland. He attended a Pet Shop Boys concert in Glasgow in 1988 and gave a demo tape to Peter Andreas, Pet Shop Boys' personal assistant. Andreas contacted Cicero with an offer of artist management and later, when Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe heard Cicero's material, they signed him up to their recently formed Spaghetti label, licensed through Polydor.
Cicero released his début single "Heaven Must Have Sent You Back to Me" on August 12, 1991. Despite promotion from the artist and Pet Shop Boys, the single failed to chart. The follow-up, "Love is Everywhere", reached number 19 in the UK Singles Chart in January 1992. The third single release was "That Loving Feeling" which reached number 46 in April 1992. The latter two singles were co-produced by Pet Shop Boys.
His debut album, Future Boy, was released in June 1992. The album was produced by David Jacob, with the exceptions of "Love is Everywhere" and "That Loving Feeling", which were produced by Pet Shop Boys, and "Cloud 9" and "Sonic Malfunction", which Cicero produced himself. Pet Shop Boys also remixed "Heaven Must Have Sent You Back To Me" for the album, and also received keyboard and backing vocal credit for the album. The music video for the single was directed by Chris Lowe.
On November 2, 1992, Cicero released a fifth single "Live for Today" with Sylvia Mason-James providing backing vocals. The single was taken from the Pet Shop Boys produced soundtrack to the film, The Crying Game.
By late 1996, Cicero moved to Clubscene Records, later merged into Academy Street Records in Scotland and his brother Mike took over as manager. He supported Take That on tour.
Cicero featured as one of the mystery guests in the episode of Never Mind the Buzzcocks, broadcast on October 9, 2008 on BBC Two.
Cicero has later went on to do music for his instrumental band called "The Event" and also done music for independent films.
Cicero's new album "Today" will be available on the 10th March 2021 with a limited amount of physical CD releases. The album will also be available on all digital download and streaming sites.
29 golden years later this follow up album "Today" will feature new tracks and additional unreleased remixes.
