Thanks to Alex at Werkstatt for putting on the show last week.

Big thanks also to Ben Kaestner-Frenchman and Simit Patel for performing on the night.

More thanks to Amyra for the lyric help on ‘hard to please’.

And the biggest thanks to the audience for 1) attending and 2) filling in on backing vocals for the Carly Rae Jepsen song.

Recap: Shared Stage at TLS Frankfurt

David Ding can sing!

On Saturday I did a short set at TLS Frankfurt‘s Shared Stage event. It was my public performance in about three years, so I was quite rusty. But it was a lot fun nonetheless. Who knows, it may even spur me on to try and play some more!

Cheers to TLS for giving me (and the other acts) the opportunity to perform. And to those in attendance for the warm welcome and response.
