Taryn Manning is more than a triple threat in the entertainment industry. A love for music helped inspire her solo career, two albums with her band Boomkat, and a solid and thriving DJ career. Manning is known for exploring a range of diverse roles in television, independent films and major studio productions. Always one to have multiple projects in the works, while juggling her acting career, Manning is a true force with her sultry vocals as the front woman of Boomkat and the saucy electronic beats on her solo tracks.
Manning's music career began in 2003 when Taryn and brother Kellin united to form the band, Boomkat. The duo released their debut album, Boomkatalog.One through Dreamworks with their first single, "The Wreckoning," making its debut as #1 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. Boomkat closed out 2003 as Billboard Magazine's #5 Hot Dance Club Play Artist of the Year. After a four-year hiatus and much anticipation, Boomkat released a new single "Runaway." Motivated by the success of the track, Boomkat released their sophomore album, A Million Trillion Stars in March 2009 through Manning's Little Vanilla Records. From the beginning of their career, Boomkat experienced immediate success. The soulful single "Wastin' My Time" from the same record was personally licensed by Eminem and featured on the 8 Mile Soundtrack which sold over 6 million records worldwide. Boomkat's remake of the Blondie song "Rip Her to Shreds" can be heard in the opening credits of the film Mean Girls and "The Wreckoning" was used in the opening scene of The Italian Job. Manning is also in the studio working with producer Linney on material for her upcoming solo album.
In 2009, Manning laid down her first dance infused solo track, "So Talented," which landed in an episode of The CW's Melrose Place. A regular on the club music scene and eager to explore the entirety of her music career, Manning began experimenting as a DJ. With an exceptional ear for music, Manning easily booked gigs including high profiled events such as House of Hype's Sundance and Coachella parties, The Runaways closing party at SXSW and a pre-Grammy Party at SLS Hotel. All of which lead to a two-month residency at L.A. hot spot, Crown Bar and a recent signing with Moodswing360, one of the premiere DJ booking agencies in the industry. With a solid play list created specific for each event, Manning is continuing to show her longevity within the industry as a true musical force.
