Julee A. Cruise (born December 1, 1956, Creston, Iowa) is an American singer, songwriter, actress and musician whom writer and critic David Foster Wallace called "one of the ten most influential female singers in the last 20 years." She has recorded four albums, but is probably best known for "Falling", the theme song for the cult U.S. television series Twin Peaks. During the late 1980s and early 1990s, she collaborated with composer Angelo Badalamenti and film director David Lynch, who produced and wrote the lyrics for many of her released songs. Cruise is also a songwriter in her own right. She is married to Edward Grinnan, Editor-in-Chief of Guideposts magazine and best-selling author of The Promise of Hope.
