About Eagle-Eye Cherry
Swedish singer-songwriter Eagle-Eye Cherry did his famous musical family proud in the late ’90s, when his single “Save Tonight” went Top 5 in America and earned a Grammy nomination.
• Eagle-Eye Cherry is the son of revered jazz trumpeter Don Cherry and designer Moki Cherry. He’s also the half-brother of “Buffalo Stance” hitmaker Neneh Cherry.
• After moving to New York City in 1984, he focused on acting and attended the same performing arts high school as Jennifer Anniston.
• Following his father’s death in 1995, Cherry returned to Sweden to record his debut album, Desireless. It’s named for a song by his dad that he covers on the LP.
• Desireless opens with “Save Tonight” a catchy farewell song that went to No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was nominated for Best Male Vocal Pop Performance at the 1999 Grammys. The album went platinum in the US.
• Cherry cowrote and featured on Santana's “Wishing It Was,” off the legendary guitarist’s Grammy-winning 1999 comeback album Supernatural.
• As of 2021, Cherry had released four more albums, none of which matched the chart success of his debut.
