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 am tied for nick and disney. I like nick for the fact that it had some good shows like Fairly Oddparents. disney had good shows that brings back good memories but it now has stupid shows with screaming children and overall loud voices, in a bad way.

    It depends. I prefer the older shows on Disney and Nick. Most shows that are on Disney and Nick today are stupid in my opinion, If I would watch anything it would be Spongebob and the older shows on Nick and Disney. I can't decide.
