Eagle-Eye Lanoo Cherry (born 7 May 1968) is a Swedish singer and stage-performer from Stockholm, Sweden. He is best known for his hit single ?Save Tonight? which received commercial success globally, climbing high in the charts in Ireland, the United States and the United Kingdom and was voted song of the year in New Zealand.

Eagle-Eye Cherry is of Choctaw descent, the son of a jazz artist. He pursued acting during high school, attending class alongside contemporaries Jennifer Aniston and Chaz Bono. Cherry’s acting career was set aside as his musical career took precedence in his life with his debut album Desireless in 1997. He has released several other albums since his debut, and has co-written for other artists and films, and has guest-starred on reality television. Cherry's music is of the acoustic, rock, post-grunge and alternative rock genres.

Early life

Cherry was born on 7 May 1968, in Stockholm, Sweden, the son of American jazz artist Don Cherry and Swedish painter/textile artist Monika Cherry (née Karlsson). Of Choctaw descent through his paternal grandmother and African-American through his grandfather, Cherry is the fourth of five siblings. He is the half-brother of singer Neneh Cherry (his mother's daughter). Other half-siblings are violinist Jan Cherry, Christian Cherry, and jazz musician David Ornette Cherry. 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. At 16, he enrolled in the High School of Performing Arts in New York in the same class as Jennifer Aniston and Chaz Bono.

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

Cherry co-wrote and sang on "Wishing It Was" on Santana's 1999 album Supernatural, 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.

His fifth album, Streets of You, was released on 26 October 2018.
