Boomkat's Taryn Manning Interview

By Sindy

Somebody pinch me! I snagged some talk-time with a very busy Taryn Manning! Boomkat's singing sensation has been hopping all over the US promoting the CD Boomkatalog One with her big bro Kellin. Taryn and I chatted about the album, being famous and music in general. Check it out peeps!

Sindy: Hey Taryn! I know you've been super-busy promoting Boomkatalog One, and it's your first time doing this sorta thing. Is it easier or harder than you thought it would be?

Taryn: When you're just starting to come up, and you're still introducing yourself to people and trying to get people to listen to your stuff, it's not the most glamorous part of the business. People think it's all just fun and games but it really is a lot of hard work.

Sindy: Which is harder - doing the acting thing or doing the Boomkat thing?

Taryn: It depends. This part - when you're driving all day or flying and going around to all these radio stations and basically... well, kinda kissing butt - it can be very hard. Kellin and I like to be nice people. We like to show we're tangible so the radio station actually cares when they play our stuff. We want them to be like, "We like these people." But, it's not always easy and it's not glamorous.

With acting, it's the auditioning part that sucks. Once you got the role it's, like, glamorous. So if I had to compare, I'd call this part we're doing now, the auditioning part. When we actually get to play, or record a song, or even write a song - that's the glamorous part.

Sindy: In your song, Daydreamin', you talk about how you and Kellin used to fight a lot when you were younger. Do you get on each other's nerves now that you're working together so much?

Taryn: It's very rare now, but once in a while we'll fight ugly - not physical - but just where we curse and call each other stupid names. But honestly, within hours it's resolved. There's never anything we hold on to because we have work to do and we both have our eye on the same goal. We always just say - if you don't want to be here, then don't, but don't come with a bad attitude. And most days, we have such fun together and we have such a great time.

    I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)
