Go To

Ruelle (actual name, Margaret "Maggie" Eckford) is an electro-pop singer from Mississippi. She's best known for her songs being used in television media.

Born in 1985, on November 21st, she's the middle of three sisters and grew up in Hattiesburg, Miss, attending a private Christian school. At some point, she attended music school in Sydney, Australia. Some time after she became professionally based in Nashville, Tenn, she adopted her current stage name because, apparently, she liked that it gave off an "air of darkness and mystery.
