Biography

Along with his breakthrough American hit “Save Tonight,” alternative singer/songwriter Eagle-Eye Cherry became the most recent person in his family to stir the music globe: his father was avant-garde jazz trumpeter Don Cherry, and his sister was alternative rap pioneer Neneh Cherry. Delivered in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1971, Cherry was christened Eagle-Eye (yes, his genuine name) as the first-time he viewed his dad, he did therefore with only 1 eye open up. Cherry spent the majority of his early years as a child in Sweden and on the highway with his dad, with age group 14, when his family members relocated to NY, he studied performing at the brand new York College of Performing Arts. He also used the drums, playing in a number of rings for fun, and later on performed around with keyboards and songwriting. Performing remained his main focus for the moment, though, and after college he made a full time income appearing in takes on, commercials, and the casual tv pilot; he also guested around the Cosby Show. For the time being, seeking even more control over his personal creative manifestation, Cherry started playing acoustic guitar and writing tunes once again. Don Cherry passed on in 1995, along with a grief-stricken Eagle-Eye shifted back again to Stockholm along with his partner to very clear his head. It had been there that he begun to earnestly focus on songwriting, and got time to hone a couple of original materials modeled in the acoustic vocalist/songwriter custom, with details of blues and light funk. Choosing to try his good fortune in Sweden prior to the even more competitive American market, Cherry documented his debut record, Desireless, and provided it a low-key discharge in the Swedish label Diesel in 1997. Steadily, thanks partly towards the singles “Conserve Tonight” and “Falling in Like Once again,” the recording became popular — 1st in Sweden, after that Scandinavia, then all over European countries. Desireless was found by Sony’s Function Group department for American distribution, and premiered in the summertime of 1998. “Save Tonight” quickly began a reliable climb in the graphs, and buoyed by support from your VH1 arranged, it ultimately peaked in the very best Five. Cherry was red-hot, and Desireless proceeded to go platinum in the us, selling a complete of four million copies world-wide. In the summertime of 1999, he made an appearance on Carlos Santana’s vaunted return album Supernatural, performing the duet “Wishing IT HAD BEEN.” Cherry toured the entire world to get Desireless, and through the substantial promotional jaunt his romantic relationship dissolved. The separation educated his second recording, Living in today’s Future, that was released in European countries in 2000. Remixed for American launch, the recording was retitled Present/Long term, sported another running purchase with a number of different songs, and wasn’t released in the U.S. until past due 2001. Regardless of the Western success of business lead single “Feels Therefore Right,” and also a well-received duet with sister Neneh on “GOOD WAY Around,” Present/Potential didn’t attract almost just as much interest in the us as its forerunner.
