Bio

Damon Buxton is an American guitarist and composer. His primary instrument is the six-string classical guitar. He uses silent spaces, open tunings, natural reverb, and double picking to create a beautifully sparse and resonant sound. His compositions draw on musical traditions of fingerstyle, classical, new age, and jazz and his arrangements of existing pieces are infused with an inspiring dynamic and beauty. He delivers an uplifting and powerful instrumental guitar performance with positive humor and grace.

Damon was educated at Cornish College of The Arts in Seattle Washington USA. After an early collaboration with Windham Hill Records founder Will Ackerman, he built his own studio and set out to create some of the world’s most beautiful and intimate guitar recordings.

Damon has performed at Kirkland Performance Center and Bastyr University Chapel in Seattle, The Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh, and other performing arts centers throughout the United States. He is available to perform in the US, Canada, Japan, and Europe.

Damon Buxton plays and records exclusively with Hannabach strings.
