About Julee Cruise

With her hauntingly beautiful voice, Julee Cruise gave the worlds that director David Lynch and composer Angelo Badalamenti created with Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks their souls before making wider-ranging music. "Mysteries of Love," from Lynch's 1986 film Blue Velvet, introduced her plaintive, unearthly tones and an alluring mix of dream pop, jazz, and innocent 1950s pop that inspired 1989's Floating into the Night and 1993's The Voice of Love. These albums influenced dream pop for years to come and connected Cruise to Lynch and Badalamenti's other projects -- most notably Twin Peaks, which transformed her single "Falling" into an international hit in 1990. However, Cruise spent much of her career developing the other sides of her music. She toured with the B-52's and collaborated with Pharrell; later albums, such as 2011's My Secret Life, blended dance and lounge with jazz-inflected vocals, emphasizing her dedication to making music on her own terms.
