1 December 1956, Creston, Iowa, USA. This female vocalist rose to fame in 1990 as the musical star of David Lynchs cult television series, Twin Peaks, gliding above Angelo Badalamentis music and Lynchs lyrics on the shows memorable theme tune, Falling. Cruise, who has a degree in French horn from Drake University, had worked with Badalamenti and Lynch before, contributing Mysteries Of Love to the soundtrack of 1985s Blue Velvet. She also appeared in another Lynch/Badalamenti production, Industrial Symphony No. 1, in which she was suspended above an industrial landscape by a web of wires. Her critically-acclaimed debut, Floating Into The Night, was released in late 1989. The album mixed the sense of small town melodrama and macabre embodied by Falling with her own, measured vocal identity. Her commentary on it; its a very romantic album, but its realistic. When youre in love...
