After nearly 3 years of loyal service our drummer Lars has left to concentrate on his teaching and session jobs. We thank Lars for his time and his contribution to the William Lee Self project!
As much as we regret Lars’ decision, we are really happy to announce that Marc Balance has re-joined the band as bassist and David has exchanged the bass against the drumset… The new line-up will be debuting on 11/12/2013 at Grüner Jäger in Hamburg.

Thanks to all of you who came to our show last week at Hafenbahnhof in Hamburg, it’s been a great show! We’re currently busy putting all the bits and pieces for the release of the new William Lee Self album “Wichita” together – only a few more weeks, stay tuned for tour dates and release details! In order to shorten the waiting time, you might want to have a look at a couple of new sections on this website. The “wood and wire” section might be of interest for everyone who is into equipment-pictures and in the discography section, you’ll find infos about Lee’s most important releases. Under “bio”, you’ll find a new picture gallery with a selection of old pictures, which is going to be filled with more material quite soon. Enjoy!
There might still be a couple of bugs, but we didn’t want to wait any longer, so here it is: welcome to a more or less preliminary version of www.william-lee-self.com Feel free to start reading through the pages and drop a line if you have questions or if you find certain things to not work yet.
We’re also happy to announce Lee’s first gig this year: we hope to see you all on the 21st February at Hafenbahnhof in Hamburg.
