Siobhan Dillon isn’t exactly a new face in the British entertainment scene: The gorgeous actress made her big break in the theater world with an appearance on 2006’s How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?, a BBC reality TV competition for the next actress to play Maria in The Sound Of Music.
Dillon didn’t win (she came in third place overall), but she certainly benefited from the show: She’s since gone on to play in Grease, Cabaret, Legally Blonde, and currently stars in Ghost, which is now running in the West End.
Yet like so many of our favorite pop chanteuses today, the actress is now setting her sights on the music scene, beginning with a luscious new House track: “Powerless.”
“Am I powerless, like a bird with a broken wing?/Am I powerless? Your love is everything,” Dillon cries out above the track’s surging, arena-sized synthesizers and teary-eyed piano melody.
Although it’s still very early days for the project (“Powerless” is a white label release not due out until early March), and the single mix of the song hasn’t even been confirmed yet (the Vegas Baby remix below seems poised to be the final edit), there’s still plenty of promise for this seemingly disco-minded diva.
For lovers of dreamy dance floor numbers like Sophie Ellis-Bextor‘s collaboration with Armin Van Buuren (“Not Giving Up On Love”) or Kaskade‘s tracks with Haley (“Move For Me, “Llove”), take note: Siobhan Dillon is officially a person of interest.
“Powerless” will be released in early March.
