Specific Coast is singer-songwriter, Matt Dunne, based in L.A., California. Dunne picked up the guitar at the age of 13 and soon after began teaching himself how to sing. Drawing comparisons to bands like The Lumineers and The Head and the Heart, Specific Coast often mixes finger-picking acoustic guitars with heartfelt lyrics.

A veteran of the music industry, Dunne has held positions in concert promotion, artist management, music publishing, and label management. After multiple peers in the industry had come to him for guidance, Dunne created Cactus Coast, a community where artists, songwriters, engineers, and producers could help each other achieve their goals. Dunne began hosting backyard concerts at his home in Silver Lake, providing a unique, intimate setting for artists like Royal & the Serpent to perform.

Dunne used this safe space to test out new material for his own project, Specific Coast. Eventually, the house shows turned into networking events, which turned into writing sessions, which turned into songs, which turned into several placements in a Netflix series. After years of helping others transform their dreams into realities, Specific Coast continues to amaze us with incredibly well-crafted songs.
