Tomar Williams got his start singing lead and playing various
instruments on the Chitlin Circuit with his family soul band as a
youngster. After establishing himself on the Austin music scene
as a keyboardist in the late 80s and 90s, Tomar and his brother,
Salih, formed the production team “Carnival Beats”. They went
on to produce iconic Hip-Hop tracks for Big Mo “Barre Baby”,
Mike Jones “Still Tippin'”, and many more. Tomar also played
keys in and helped lead the Black Ties, the backing band for
Texas soul singer Latasha Lee.
In 2015, Tomar decided to return to his roots as a frontman and
Tomar and the FCs was born. In October of 2015, the band self
recorded and released their first EP, “Day by Day”. Deborah
Sengupta Stith of the Austin American Statesman selected it as
one of her top releases of the year writing, “Williams shows his
own soul chops with searing vocals that drip with blood, sweat
and tears”.
“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
(Brownout, Grupo Fantasma, and Echocentrics). Sam Harrell of wrote that the album is, “Pure soul, pure energy…
Heart Attack, the single from the band’s latest album of the same
name, is an electric three minute ride of some of the purest
blues/soul we’ve heard lately.”
