Artifacts Volume 1, released in 2013, primarily features instrumental keyboard and electronic music, with a few vocal tracks too.
The album presents a unique and captivating collection of Mike's soundtrack and production pieces, scoring cues, and various song demos recorded over a number of years for different projects.
The 20 tracks include everything from epic themes and sweeping soundscapes, to gentle ambience and rockin' grooves.
"I had so many of these cool little pieces of music lying around that I figured it was time to assemble a bunch of them into a proper album." says Mike.
"I also threw some extras online for those who get the cd. This is different from the progressive rock stuff most people associate me with, although there are certainly traces of that in a few places."

Artifacts Vol 1 is also available at iTunes and CD Baby.
Arisen, released in 2006, features a potent blend of progressive and classic rock.
"Supported by a formidable cast on guitar, bass, and drums, Mike keeps things clean and punchy, alternating between passionate vocal sections and dramatic instrumental passages. Florio's voice also is a cut above; his clear, resonant sound fluid and effortless."
- Progression Magazine, USA
"The progressive element of the album is of the acceptable kind that never meanders and gets to the point without ever disappearing into over-complicated, jazz style workouts. Mike handles all the keyboards and vocals and does a sterling job on both fronts."
