Tomar and the FCs is a soul band from Austin, Texas formed in 2015 and released their first EP “Day by Day” in October of that year. The Austin American-Statesman picked it as a top release and wrote that “ [Tomar] Williams shows his own soul chops with searing vocals that drip with blood, sweat and tears.”
2016 saw the band become mainstays on the Austin scene and throughout Texas. In March, they were selected to play an official showcase at SXSW. “Heart Attack,” the band’s debut album, was released in November of 2016. It was recorded and mixed at Level One studio with Grammy-winning artist/engineer Adrian Quesada.
In early 2018, the band was voted in the top five of the Austin Chronicle’s Music Poll for Best Blues, Funk, or Soul Artist. In March, they returned to SXSW performing as official artists and were awarded a prestigious Black Fret nomination. In addition to a busy
performance schedule, with an appearance at Old Settler’s Music Festival and three summer tours, the band is hard at work on their third recording.
