to be a musician. After moving from Sweden to New York City with his 
 family in
 his early teens, Eagle-Eye attended the School of Performing Arts, 
 with his heart set on being an actor. After graduation
 he spent his time acting on various TV-shows and modelling. However, 
music was always a big presence in Eagle-Eye's
 life. Growing up, he spent a lot of time on tour with his father, 
jazz musician Don Cherry. While working in other fields,
 Eagle-Eye was writing music and performing in clubs in New York, 
mostly for fun, with no intention of pursuing a career
 as a musician. 

 When Eagle-Eye returned to Stockholm in the mid-Nineties he 
became more focused on music, and started writing what
 has now become his first album. On the album, Eagle-Eye 
keeps most of the work within the family. Apart from drawing
 inspiration from his late father's music, Eagle-Eye has 
recorded a duet with Titiyo, and recruited brother-in-law 
 McVey, a.k.a. Booga Bear, (Massive Attack, Neneh Cherry, Tricky) 
for remixes. 

 The music that Eagle-Eye makes is very different from what most have come to excpect, 
considering the family ties. The
 central elements are an acoustic guitar, a steady beat and Eagle-Eye's beautiful, 
laid-back vocals. It is a very personal
 and very modern take on the blues tradition, and Eagle-Eye carries it on excellently.
