Then & Now
Michael is a composer of instrumental guitar music. He is a graduate of Five Towns College in Long island, New York with a major in music. He currently resides in Deer Park, New York. This is his first full length CD release. Michael has performed in venues throughout Long Island and New York City. Here are what critics are saying about his music: 'I can't single out any one song on this CD as the best, since all of them left me quite breathless- but I'd say the first one, 'Jimmy's Song,' just grabbed me and held my ears until the song ended. This beautiful example of Corio's acoustic work should not go unheard. If you get the opportunity, do not miss seeing or hearing Michael Corio. It's just too good.' -Island Ear Magazine 'Creative music is music that can create a picture in your mind without the use of words. It should give your imagination the sense of freedom to visualize whatever it desires. Creative music is produced when the instument alone has succeeded in causing emotion. Those who have the ability to execute this sound are true musicians. Michael Corio has succeeded in doing this. Mr. Corio exhibits clean, slow tempo, bluesy music which reveals his passion and energy. His music contains a mystic presence that allows your dreams to run wild, especially in the track 'Jimmy's Song.'' -Good Times Magazine 'All too seldom do we find true, genuine beauty. Michael Corio, on this recording has captured this quality. A highly recommended listen from an all too rare talent.' -Good Times Magazine.
