Tomar and the FCs debuted during SXSW and released their first EP, “Day by Day”, in October. 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”.
