Julee Cruise (born December 1, 1956, Creston, Iowa) is an American singer, and actress.
With a distinctive, airy voice, Cruise has recorded three albums, but is probably best known for the lead vocal on "Falling," the theme song for the cult U.S. television series Twin Peaks. Until recently, she was a frequent collaborator with composer Angelo Badalamenti and film director David Lynch, who produced and wrote the lyrics for most of her songs.
Cruise currently lives in Manhattan with her husband Edward Grinnan, the editor-in-chief of Guideposts Magazine. She is in pre-production for her upcoming album featuring New York musicians Jesse Krakow, Clifton Hyde and Mike Pride which will be released in 2011.
