I'm Padraig McManamon and I am a singer, songwriter and guitarist and living in Langen, Germany since 2002.
I come originally from the west of Ireland and have been in Germany since 1998. After coming to germany music took a back seat for nearly 20 years until a few years ago I decided to start playing again and went back to guitar and vocal classes to brush up on things.
In 2016 I founded newDirection with Oliver Jost playing rock covers from the 60’s to today. Now I have decided to give up the name newDirection and to continue simply as myself, Padraig McManamon, though continuing to play with other musicians as often as possible.
The music style is mainly rock covers from the 60's upwards to today, while also building in my own songs.
