Early life

Cherry was born in Stockholm,[2] Sweden,[1] the son of jazz artist Don Cherry and Swedish painter/textile artist Monika "Moki" Cherry (née Karlsson). He is half-brother of singer Neneh Cherry (his mother's daughter) and is stepbrother to singer Titiyo.[3][4] Other half-brothers are violinist Jan Cherry, Christian Cherry, and jazz musician David Ornette Cherry. As children, Eagle-Eye and Neneh often travelled with their father.

At the age of 12, Cherry was sent to school in New York City. He remained there to work as an actor and a drummer in various bands.[3]

Career

In 1988, he was credited as "Teenager" in the film Arthur 2: On the Rocks. In 1993 he starred on the short-lived NBC action/adventure television show South Beach.

His father died in 1995. In 1996 Cherry returned to Stockholm to focus on his music rather than the acting career that had taken precedence in his professional life.[5] He began writing and recording his debut album, Desireless, in his bedroom studio on an acoustic guitar.[5] According to manager Tommy Manzi, Cherry's perfectionism made him keep the recordings under wraps until the album was virtually complete.[5] The album became a commercial success throughout the world during 1998 and 1999.[3] Desireless sold four million copies worldwide and was certified platinum in the United States.[3]

Cherry co-wrote and sang on "Wishing It Was" on Santana's 1999 album Supernatural,[3] as well as in films such as Wim Wenders' The Soul of a Man, Y tu mamá también, The Love of the Game, GO, Best Laid Plans, Holes, Billy Elliot and Over Her Dead Body. Some of his best known songs include "Save Tonight", "Falling in Love Again", "Are You Still Having Fun", "Long Way Around", "Feels So Right", "Skull Tattoo" and "Don't Give Up".

On 27 November 2012 he appeared as musical guest on The Voice of Romania.[6]
