Éowyn (born Rebecca Éowyn Denee Krueger on March 1, 1979) is a Christian alternative rock artist from the Nashville, Tennessee area that began in 1999. She is a Nashville-based recording artist with an industrial hard rock style and Gothic influences to back up her theatrical stage presence. She's had radio airplay in over 200 cities and has had two Top Twenty National Christian rock singles on the R&R charts. Her first single "Take Me Away" ranked at No. 18 and her second single "Hold Me" went to No. 15.
She has extensive touring experience playing in venues of all sizes, including festivals, bars, youth gatherings and arenas. She has shared the stage with some of the biggest artists in the Christian Music industry including Krystal Meyers, Petra, Staple, Tait and others. She has toured throughout the U.S. from California to Florida.
Nashville's Embassy Music noticed her and awarded her Grand Prize winning songwriter for her song "Break Free". She also caught the attention of some of the top producers in the industry, including veterans Kevan Cyka (Lifehouse, R.E.M., Hilary Duff), Dan Needham (Stacie Orrico, Steven Curtis Chapman) and Matt Bronleewe (Plumb, Joy Williams).
Due to financial difficulties, in 2008 she was forced to announce her departure from the industry and sell everything that had to do with her musical career. In 2011, with what Éowyn describes as "only by God's grace," she is back.
She says, "My name is actually from the Lord of the Rings books and now movies. My dad was a huge fan of Lord of the Rings, and Éowyn is one of the characters. People always ask me if it's my real name, but it really is."
She is married to her manager and current keyboardist Russell Riggins.
