Tomar and the FCs is a soul band from Austin, TX formed in 2015. The Austin American Statesman picked their first EP as a top release, writing that, “Williams shows his own soul chops with searing vocals that drip with blood, sweat and tears”. Later that year, NPR Music chose Tomar and the FCs to represent the city for their Tiny Desk Concert Series.
“Heart Attack”, the band’s debut album, was released in November of 2016. It was recorded with Grammy winning artist/engineer Adrian Quesada. KUTX wrote that the album is, “Pure soul, pure energy.”
The band had a number of festival appearances in 2017, including at Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL). In early 2018, the band was selected by The Austin Chronicle as “A Band to Watch”, and were awarded a prestigious Black Fret nomination. The band will be debuting their second album at SXSW 2019.
