Tomar and the FC’s are a new band on the Austin scene, but vocalist and frontman Tomar Williams is no stranger to the stage. He was lead singer in his family’s band in the 80’s, and has continued to back up many Austin musicians over the years, including, most recently, Latasha Lee. He’s also co-produced some Texas hip hop classics from Paul Wall and Mike Jones. But the FC’s marks Williams’ return to the vocal spotlight, and backed by a powerful soul four-piece, he’s taking full advantage of the situation. Just a few months into their existence, they’ve already turned heads at SXSW, gathered a ‘best of the year’ from the American Statesman for their early 2015 EP, appeared on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert, and headlined New Year’s Eve at the Continental Club. Their debut album, Heart Attack, packed with great performances, will only accelerate the frenzy.
