Eagle-Eye Cherry

Eagle-Eye Cherry



For a young man in Sweden, born into a family of musicians and striving to be one himself, the success of Eagle-Eye Cherry’s 1998 single “Save Tonight,” from his first album Desireless, was overwhelming. Originally just trying to release a small album through an independent label in Sweden, Cherry had no intention of making it big in Europe, and surely in his wildest dreams, not America either. The truth be told, he did both in one try, and his second album, Present/Future, has the same possibility and the same promise. The first single, “Feels So Right,” currently getting friendly with the airwaves of contemporary adult stations, is the first attempt. Along with his own musical ventures, Cherry — brother of pop singer Neneh Cherry and son of jazz master Don Cherry — also has worked with Carlos Santana (“Wishing It Was” on Santana’s Supernatural) and recorded songs with The Dust Brothers and Maxim from The Prodigy. A few of the best tracks on his own record are “Been Here Once Before,” “Crashing Down,” “Lonely Days (Miles Away),” and “Together.” All the songs are 100%. Unedited feeling, work, and complete artistic vision make each track single-worthy.
