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, oh, and Stevie Wonder. At sixteen 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, Dennis Brown and numerous others. Then came the slow discovery of George Benson and Charlie Christian, and through them, Wes Montgomery, Miles Davis and Charlie Parker. His own musical taste direction veered towards jazz, and his taste and talent brought him to London where he became a regular on the Calypso, reggae, and jazz circuit. Eventually touring the world playing with Courtney Pine’s award winning band.
