Cherry was christened Eagle-Eye because the first time he looked at his father, he did so with only one eye open. As children, Eagle-Eye and his older sister Neneh spent months on the road with their father, the trumpeter Don Cherry. At the age of 12, Cherry was sent to school in New York, where he stayed on to work as an actor, and a drummer in various bands. 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, and in 1996 he returned to Sweden to begin writing and making his debut album, Desireless, which became a commercial success throughout the world during 1998 and 1999. Desireless went platinum in the United States, selling a total of four million copies worldwide.
Cherry has also had his music featured on Santana's Supernatural album as well as in films such as Wim Wenders' The Blues, Y Tu Mama Tambien, The Love of The Game, GO, Best Laid Plans, Holes, Billy Elliot and Over Her Dead Body. Some of his most well 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".
