Adopted Chyl of Da South
Alsace Carcione: 'The Adopted Chyl of Da South' Although Alsace Carcione has established herself as The Adopted Chyl of Da South, southerners aren't the only ones enjoying the completely original raps of this multifaceted artist. Born and bred in Portsmouth, Virginia, Tracy Nicole Thomas began developing her musical talents by participating in her church band, church choir, and school band. During this time, she mastered playing the trumpet, baritone, and trombone. She cultivated her writing skills by writing poetry, short stories, small plays, songs and keeping a journal. Alsace has been actively performing since the age of eight years old; and as a result, she gained many supporters from Virginia who recognized her exceptional abilities early on. After relocating to the Dallas/Fort Worth area in 2004, she set forth two main objectives (1) to produce a CD showcasing her work and (2) to be endorsed by a leading record label. In her efforts to reach these goals, Alsace currently holds a portfolio of nearly 70 commercial quality recordings and has been featured on several compilation albums released by independent record labels in the Dallas area (IllicitLife Entertainment's The I.L.E. Volume 1, Finn's Finn Entertainment Mixtape album, and the Suede da P album). Her debut CD will be finely sculpted with a wide-range of sounds including vintage funk, melodious R&B, and intense hip-hop. Additionally, her narratives highlight several focus points such as the pursuit of success, individuality, sexuality, and the untimely death of her best friend. Because of her genuine insight and innovative delivery, Alsace Carcione is a "F.R.E.S.H." alternative to the current pop idol mannequins and studio gangster rappers.
