Introducing Jenna Dwyer - Wrestler/Pop Diva

Using a film or TV role as a stepping stone to chart glory isn't exactly a new phenomenon - just look at Jennifer Lopez, Hilary Duff and Miley Cyrus. But I don't think anyone in the history of music has launched their pop career on the back of a starring role in a zombie wrestling movie. That is until now! Australia's Jenna Dwyer is clearly a woman of many talents. She not only kicks undead butt as the fearsome heroine in the forthcoming film Parts Unknown: Fight Like A Girl, the aspiring pop diva also recorded the theme song. And - somewhat surprisingly - "Fight Like A Girl" it is fucking awesome. I love Jenna's voice, the quirky production sits somewhere between Evanescence and Christina Aguilera circa "Stripped" and it even has a deceptively catchy chorus. This shit really creeps up on you! It should be noted that the song was co-written by the brilliant Mandy Kane (read my interview with him here), which helps explain its dark pop sensibility. I don't know what Jenna has planned for us next but I'm on board. Make sure you watch the eye-popping video clip (below). Our glamorous heroine prowls the wrestling ring in a black leotard, while some of Australia's hottest female wrestlers battle it out around her. Bring on the movie - it looks right up my alley!
