Peter Buxton Guitar  Vocals 

Singer songwriter


Combining an unmatched passion for music with an energy and commitment to the best in music,  Sideways have built a solid following by word of mouth   in both the South West of England and the High Peak District where he is from. 

As an experienced musician, mover and shaker, 

Peters writing paints a picture and develops with the listener to produce reflection, emotion and close observation into the people,  places and relationships that surround him.

This is usually accompanied with a dose of wry ironic  humour.  

Here, on the Site you can stay up to date on latest developments on live gigs, blogs news and personal views, along with sparkling new songs. They may be about romance, the difficulties of life or just about everyday simple things that are easily taken for granted.

 Alwaysto using creative music to look at life in a Sideways fashion.

From romantic, to the day to day mundane


All About Peter Buxton

Peter Buxton is a singer songwriter now relocated from the Peak District of Derbyshire to the beautiful coastal landscape of Dorset.

what could be more inspirational?

He has an innovative approach to his songs and musical profile, fuelled by the buzzing London   cultural scene of his wilder years,  which contrasts with  the different world of the Northern landscape, trains and pits  he grew up with.

His songs often speak or observe the ironies of the landscape and relationships he sees around him.

Fluently moving between genres, Indie songwriting and Blues / Jazz play a great part in his creativity.

His songs often speak with sharpness and observations about  the landscapes ans relationships he is surrounded by.

Peter is essentially a live performance musician, and loves to draw people into a close, engaging relationship.
He has performed around the

UK & Europe for many years.
