Antoine Pierre started playing the drums at the age of 12. As he turned 18 in 2010, Antoine Pierre joined the regular band of Belgian guitar legend Philip Catherine which allowed him to tour extensively in various important leading jazz venues and festivals in Europe and abroad. In 2014, Antoine joined TaxiWars, the brand new band formed by dEUS frontman Tom Barman and saxophonist Robin Verheyen. Together they released their two first records : « TaxiWars » and « Fever ». Warmly acclaimed, TaxiWars has been touring intensively in Europe and abroad between 2015 and 2017 and is already in the process of recording a third album. In 2014, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Master degree from the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, Antoine moved to New York to study at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and to play with musicians of the local jazz scene. Antoine Pierre releases his first album as a leader,« Urbex » in 2016 on Igloo Records. He has composed a whole repertoire arranged for an 8-piece band with a singular orchestration (3 horns, drums, percussions, piano, guitar/electronics, electric bass).
Besides his own bands URBEX and Next.Ape, Pierre is a pro-active sideman who has been performing with various world-class musicians such as a.o. Philip Catherine, Joshua Redman, Enrico Pieranunzi, Didier Lockwood, Jacky Terrasson, Stéphan Belmondo, Logan Richardson, Perico Sambeat, Ben Wendel,… Antoine is currently an active member of Jean-Paul Estiévenart trio, TaxiWars, Philip Catherine Quartet, Félix Zurstrassen trio ft.
