My name is 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 in the Music School in Langen. In 2015 I founded newDirection with Oliver Jost playing rock covers from the 60’s to today.

In the summer of this year I entered a song into the Hessische Rock & Pop Preis 2019 which will take place on the 7th December 2019 in the Stadthalle in Langen. I am delighted to announce, that my song has been accepted and I have qualified for a place in the competition on the evening. I will be appearing with a backup band together with 5 other bands on the evening. 
Songwriting and singing my own songs is a whole new area for me, and one that I'm looking forward to developing over the coming months!
