The Specimen is the brainchild of songwriter/singer/and multi-instrumentalist Matt Gorny, who spent his childhood in Poland, under the protection of the communist bloc. When he was eleven, Gorny’s family moved to NYC's multicultural oasis – Brooklyn.

He eventually found his way into the clutches of Grammy Award winning production team GoodandEvil (aka Danny Blume and Chris Castagno) who worked with an array of diverse artists such as Felix Da Housecat, B-52’s, Kelis, Naty Botero, Beyonce and Ludacris.

The Specimen has collaborated as guest vocalist on various projects scheduled for release in 2008 including Risqué, Solitaire and Craig C. and has been writing songs with Zoned Out for a Jill Jones release. The Specimen has won multiple songwriting awards including The John Lennon Songwriting Contest and Billboard World Song Contest and the group has performed the winning track at the 15th Annual Billboard World Song Contest Awards Show.

Do U Damage video has been screened at the 2008 SXSW Film Festival and has already won the top prize in the New Music Video Awards. Songs are featured in two films at the Tribeca Film Festival, and in a reality TV show on the Bravo Channel. A remix done with GoodandEvil won first place in a competition and was released in the spring of 2007 on SLSK Records. In May 2008 The Specimen was chosen as artist of the month on Artists Forum’s website ( The band has also been charting on college radio stations all over the country.

As a live unit, The Specimen is a potent force. With the help of a few friends; Jesse McGrath on guitar, Giovanni Palacios on bass, Coleman on drums, the group confidently transforms the inventive studio sound into a captivating and seismic live performance of superstar dimensions. Mark Furnas of Billboard says: “Gorny exudes star power to match any major act.”

Currently Matt is working on a full length album. Hoping to combine several different producers’ styles as well as his own indelible mark into a cohesive package. You can look forward to a Spring 2010 single and a Summer album with videos and more extras to come.
