Taryn Manning hopes to wow Scott Rosenbaum

Taryn Manning is hoping to convince director Scott Rosenbaum to inclide her music on the soundtrack to their new film The Perfect Age of Rock n Roll with a starring performance at the premiere afterparty.

The star, who appears alongside Kevin Zegers and Jason Ritter in the music themed drama, admits she was trying to impress Rosenbaum and is planning to hit the stage after walking the red carpet on Wednesday to prove she has what it takes.

She tells WENN: ""I'd love to (feature on the soundtrack) and I played the director a couple of songs. The soundtrack isn't done so anything can happen.

  "Tonight is a party at the Brooklyn Bowl with all these legendary blues artists. I'm gonna sing a Rolling Stones cover, Miss You, with them so I'm really excited."

Manning has also provided her songs for other soundtracks but insists that she doesn't push them on filmmakers, it just happens.

She says, "Everybody knows I'm a musician and a singer and they honour that about me so somehow my music ends up in films. I really don't try to hawk my CDs to any director; it's just somehow, whether I'm in my trailer playing guitar or they just hear about it, I end up in these music films with my music.

  "I had my song Being Bad in my very first movie Crazy Beautiful, and my song Crazy Love in Crossroads and Wasting My Time is on the 8 Mile soundtrack with Eminem... It's been an interesting career because my acting and my music go hand in hand."
