Glenn Jr., 20 on guitar and lead vocals, and his brother Alex, 18, on bass and background vocals, have been playing together since they were young kids. Rising stars in Austin, Texas, the Peterson Brothers have been referred to as, “The future of Austin music” by Mark Murray of Sun Radio in Austin, and “Some of the most talented musicians I have seen come out of Austin” by Jamfeed.
The Peterson Brothers hold a standing room only weekly residency at Austin’s famed music hall, The Continental Club. They have played with and opened for the likes of Gary Clark Jr., the late B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Los Lonely Boys, North Mississippi Allstars and Willie Nelson.
They have appeared at festivals throughout the United States, including the Chicago Blues Festival, Minnesota State Fair, Riverbend Festival, Austin City Limits Festival, Ogden Roots and Blues, King Biscuit Festival, Old Settler’s Music Fest, Lancaster Blues & Roots, Allentown Blues, Brews & Barbecue, and many more.

Tomar And The FCs
Tomar And The FCs
Tomar Williams moved to Austin, Texas in 1986. He got his start singing lead and playing various instruments on the Chitlin Circuit with his family band as a youngster. After establishing himself on the Austin music scene as a keyboardist in the 90s, Tomar and his brother, Salih, formed the production team “Carnival Beats”. They went on to produce iconic Hip-Hop tracks for Big Mo, Mike Jones, and many more. Tomar also played keys and sang in 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 was introduced to The FCs, a new instrumental band on the Austin scene. Tomar and the FCs was born. In October of that year, 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”. The band opened 2016 with a NYE show at the historic Austin Continental Club, a tradition that continued in 2017 and will happen again in 2018. They were selected to play an official showcase at SXSW in March. In June, NPR Music picked Tomar and the FCs out of hundreds of Austin entries to represent the city for their Tiny Desk Concert series. The band became mainstays around the Austin and also built up a solid following throughout Texas with regular shows in San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas.
“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 KUTX.org 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.”
