Born in London, Cameron was raised on the Caribbean island of Dominica. Like most of his peers, Cameron’s early musical influences were Bob Marley, Burning Spear, Jimmy Cliff, and a host of artists from that era of popular Jamaican music, . At seventeen he taught himself to play the guitar, and it was within the reggae genre that he first established himself, working with Jamaican artists including Clint Eastwood & General Saint, Barrington, Levy, Al Campbell, Wayne Marshall, Dennis Brown, Tipa Ire, Micheal Prophet et al. Then came the slow discovery of George Benson and Charlie Christian, and through them, Wes Montgomery, Miles Davis and Charlie Parker. Since then Cameron has gone on to work with Courtney Pine, Pee Wee Ellis, Orphy Robinson, Mighty Sparrow, Ernest Ranglin, David Rudder, Andy Narell, Alex Wilson, Mario Conange, Sarah Jane Morris, Byron Wallen, Jazz Jamaica, Dennis Rollins, Ormar Puente, Junior Walker, Joe Cocker, and numerous others. A stalwart of the British jazz scene since the 80s, Pierre has been Saxophonist Courtney Pine’s guitarist for 25yrs. With 6 solo recordings to his name he continues to forge his own path. His last release, “Radio Jumbo” sees Cameron teaming up with French virtuoso pianist Mario Canonge.
