Ronan MacManus

 

Ronan MacManus is a singer/songwriter from West London. His father Ross MacManus was a musician and trumpet player with Joe Loss and his orchestra and passed on the musical tradition to all five of his sons – including the well-known musician Elvis Costello.

Ronan has recorded solo album (Strawberry Hill), an EP (War on Peace) and three BibleCode Sundays albums. His new album, Elephant in the Room, was launched in the UK at a gig in London's famous Ealing Club.

Elephant in the Room was co-written with Ronan’s brother Ruairi who also performs on the album allowing the close vocal harmonies of the brothers to be a major feature of these songs. The songs are short, snappy, and with a pop sensibility that reflects the rhythm of The Beatles with the attitude of The Who.

In June 2014, Ronan and Ruairi took the album to Brazil and toured together using the name MacManus Brothers. The Brazil tour was arranged by the British government (FCO) to coincide with the FIFA World Cup and the brothers managed to showcase British culture to a Brazilian audience, along with all the visitors in Brazil for the World Cup – playing in front of the Brazil stock exchange and in downtown São Paulo on the back of a VW Kombi truck amongst other shows.

In July 2014 the brothers performed with Elvis Costello at Kew Gardens in a much-praised summer set.

Ronan is working on new material with view to releasing a double album in 2017.
