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 Cameron 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.
