After lengthy consideration I have decided to give up the name "newDirection" and to continue as Padraig McManamon.
It simply seemed the natural thing to do. The last three years as newDirection were fun and a great expererience, but for some time I've had the feeling, it's time to take it a step further. I will continue to play with other musicians and to develop the songwriting that I started over the last year. Also, Rock covers from the 60's to today will continue to be part of my stage repertoire, and playing in a full band setup or in an acoustic unplugged setup will depend on the location - all is possible. I look forward to meeting and playing with other musicians to bring variety and good vibes to the stage.
