At just 32, Margaret “Maggie” Eckford or “Ruelle” has made some seriously good music, which most recently includes ‘Rival,’ an album that houses the track by the same name from the trailer. The show itself is based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book that traces the threat of Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda in the late 1990s and how the rivalry between the FBI and CIA may have set the path for 9/11. It’s certainly no surprise that Ruelle’s music has made it to the screen considering its cinematic style. Some of her credits include, How to Get Away with Murder, The Leftovers, The Originals, Pretty Little Liars, and The Walking Dead. Listen below.
Most people watch television show trailers for the story. I watch it for the music. While tuning into ‘The Looming Tower,’ starring the immensely talented Jeff Daniels on HULU, I noticed the drum-heavy track playing in the background, courtesy of Ruelle. So who exactly is the elusive Ruelle?
