Boomkat is an electronic and pop music duo consisting of brother-and-sister Kellin and Taryn Manning. The group released their debut album Boomkatalog.One in 2003, and their second album A Million Trillion Stars in 2008.
Taryn and Kellin were born to musical parents. Kellin eventually played drums in rock bands while his sister, Taryn, studied dance and hustled to auditions searching for her big break in Hollywood. After an unsuccessful stab at college in Arizona, Kellin moved to California to be near his sister and mother, but day jobs didn't interest him as much as the primitive beat and sample-driven tracks he'd compose on a four-track and convince his sister to rap or sing over. The duo perfected their sound, even as Taryn's acting career began to take off.
