Eagle-Eye Cherry

With his breakthrough American hit "Save Tonight," alternative singer/songwriter Eagle-Eye Cherry became the latest member of his family to stir the music world: his father was avant-garde jazz trumpeter Don Cherry, and his sister was alternative rap pioneer Neneh Cherry. Born in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1971, Cherry was christened Eagle-Eye (yes, his real name) because the first time he looked at his father, he did so with only one eye open. Cherry spent most of his early childhood in Sweden and on the road with his father, and at age 14, when his family moved to New York, he studied acting at the New York School of Performing Arts. He also took up the drums, playing in several bands for fun, and later played around with keyboards and songwriting. Acting remained his primary focus for the time being, though, and after school he made a living appearing in plays, commercials, and the occasional television pilot; he also guested on The Cosby Show. In the meantime, seeking more control over his own creative expression, Cherry began playing guitar and writing songs again.

Don Cherry passed away in 1995, and a grief-stricken Eagle-Eye moved back to Stockholm with his girlfriend to clear his head. It was there that he began to earnestly concentrate on songwriting, and took some time to hone a set of original material modeled on the acoustic singer/songwriter tradition, with touches of blues and light funk. Deciding to try his luck in Sweden before the more competitive American marketplace, Cherry recorded his debut album, Desireless, and gave it a low-key release on the Swedish label Diesel in 1997. Gradually, thanks in part to the singles "Save Tonight" and "Falling in Love Again," the album became a hit -- first in Sweden, then Scandinavia, then all across Europe. Desireless was picked up by Sony's Work Group division for American distribution, and was released in the summer of 1998. "Save Tonight" soon began a steady climb up the charts, and buoyed by support from the VH1 set, it eventually peaked in the Top Five. Cherry was red-hot, and Desireless went platinum in the States, selling a total of four million copies worldwide. In the summer of 1999, he appeared on Carlos Santana's vaunted comeback album Supernatural, singing the duet "Wishing It Was."

Cherry toured the world in support of Desireless, and during the massive promotional jaunt his relationship dissolved. The breakup informed his second album, Living in the Present Future, which was released in Europe in 2000. Remixed for American release, the album was retitled Present/Future, sported a different running order with several different tracks, and wasn't released in the U.S. until late 2001. Despite the European success of lead single "Feels So Right," plus a well-received duet with sister Neneh on "Long Way Around," Present/Future didn't attract nearly as much attention in America as its predecessor. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Comments

@Bea Morris-Ysmae l : If you're referring to Save Tonight the song is roughly 16 years old as of your post. It's not classic or what I would think of as old but it's certainly not totally new.
Skull Tattoo : This is a totally new song. At least this is the very first time I've EVER heard this song. Great song. Nice.
Are you still having fun? : I ALWAYS have fun.
I STILL SAY JOHN MACGIBBON VIDEO. I think the song and the video go really great together. It's a great family video collage. I'm in love with that video. What can I say? OK enough.. PEACE PEOPLE. Just listen and enjoy the song. I love this song.

Didn't Mindi Abair write this song? I've seen her perform it many times, and I thought she said she wrote it.
cool beans
Eagle-Eye!!! ! !
He's boring. Every time I hear an artist that has to keep repeating a chorus over and over it tells me they are just filling up time in the song because they couldn't think of any more lyrics.
Tomorrow I'll be gone :(
still love this song
Extremely Witty and Clever use of words.
xox
This freaked me out This isn't fake.
Apparently if you copy and paste this on ten comments you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out. If you break the chain you will see a dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or Im sorry

Save Tonight. LOOOVE EAGLE EYE CHERRY. Anything by this guy is good. BUT where did he go? How come he's not making any more music?
what happened to the rest of the bio Pandora? Lame yo.
525433228
This has got to be one of my favorite bands BUT I wonder what happened to them. I REALLY like their song Lorelai. I wish Pandora would play that. I really like all their music. I want to hear more from them. Where are they? Yes, Eagle-Eye, we want to hear more from you. Come out, come out, whereever you are.
keciabee33

I can remember the first time I ever heard this song. Very cathartic at the time. Still brings a smile to my mouth and sometimes, tears to my eyes.
This is a cool song. At first I didn't like it but eventually it grew on me.
grffdude
good song
Sweet tune
Save Tonight reminds me of the last time I saw my crazy ex-boyfriend . . . 1 1 years ago...and that makes me smile, because I met my now-husband a few months later!
this is a cool man. maybe i'll name my kid eagle eye. or superman. Naw! eagle eye's cooler
Love this song, good times!
Everything about this guy is not quite....,
someone needs to get on this bio! i <3 eagle eye!
