Jen and Kat are an American pop rock duo that consists of sisters Jeni Niquette and Kyndi Niquette. Their television debut was on MTV in 2007, when they co-starred in The Countdown to Newport Harbor: The Real Orange County,[2] a segment filmed and produced by MTV Studios.[3] While shooting the video for MTV in New York, the sisters also starred in Johnson & Johnson's commercial campaign for Clean & Clear's Morning Burst Shine Control Cleanser,[4] and appeared on Demanded, an On-Demand original program from Music Choice, co-hosted by a different chart-topping music artist every episode.[5] Their credits have gone on to include work with Summit Entertainment, IFC, LAIKA, Nike, and others.[6]

In March 2015 Jen and Kat's first music single, Better Place, was released worldwide, and in November 2015 their four-song electropop EP entitled Here and Now followed suit. In 2016, Jen and Kat won the Best Music category in the Armstrong Vine Awards, hosted at Mashable headquarters.[7] In November 2017, Jen and Kat released their debut album, The Sound of Goodbye, making a return to their acoustic pop roots, a style first heard in their 2015 single Better Place. In the fall of 2018, Jen and Kat announced they would be releasing a new single monthly, starting October 2018 and running throughout the following year. The sisters have performed on two cross-country tours, and their music Vines have been viewed over 21 million times.
