    Costa was born in Boston, Mass­a­chu­setts to an Ital­ian Amer­i­can fam­ily. As a child, he took a keen in­ter­est in learn­ing the gui­tar, and he be­came a mem­ber of the CBS Radio Or­ches­tra by the time he was in his teens. In the late 1940s, Costa moved to New York City to fur­ther his ca­reer by be­com­ing a ses­sion mu­si­cian. He played gui­tar with Bucky Piz­zarelli on Vaughn Mon­roe's hit record "Ghost Rid­ers in the Sky". It was around this time that Costa started ex­per­i­ment­ing with com­bi­na­tions of in­stru­ments, pro­duc­ing mu­si­cal arrange­ments, and sell­ing them to big bands. Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gormé in­vited Costa to write vocal back­grounds for their record­ings. He agreed and thus began an as­so­ci­a­tion that led to their join­ing a record label headed by Sam Clark: ABC-Para­mount Records. Costa ac­cepted the po­si­tion of head A&R man as well as chief arranger and producer. Many hits were to fol­low, not only with Lawrence and Gormé, but with Lloyd...

    Costa was con­duct­ing for Sina­tra in Las Vegas as well as ar­rang­ing his records when he suf­fered a heart at­tack and re­quired by­pass surgery. After re­cov­er­ing, he started work­ing with Mike Curb at MGM Records, pro­duc­ing and ar­rang­ing ma­te­r­ial for the Os­mond Broth­ers hits, as well as hav­ing a hand in Sammy Davis, Jr.'s "The Candy Man", "We Can Make it To­gether" by Steve & Eydie fea­tur­ing the Os­monds, and Petula Clark's cover of "My Guy". In the early 1980s, Costa scored again as an artist with a hit with his 10-year-old daugh­ter Nikka ti­tled "Out Here on My Own". The two were plan­ning a fol­low-up when Costa died of a heart at­tack on Jan­u­ary 19, 1983 in New York. On June 25, 2019, The New York Times Mag­a­zine listed Don Costa among hun­dreds of artists whose ma­te­r­ial was re­port­edly de­stroyed in the 2008 Uni­ver­sal fire.
