Def Jam's Newest Signing Alessia Tells Everyone She's "Here"

Young, talented, Canadian, sound familiar?  Alessia Caracciolo is 18-years-young and full of soul, the Brampton, Ontario native is the newest Def Jam signing and from her debut single, “Here,” Alessia will be around for a long time to come.  Lending her talents to those who may be less outgoing than others, “Here” is an ode to those who prefer to hang out by themselves every once and a while.  The soulful, piano backed ballad boasts some full and melodic vocals along with a slow-dance like feel.  Alessia had this to say about the track to The Fader:

“This one time I went to a party and while there, I realized how much I hated it, along with every other party I had ever gone to. We wrote about it the next day.”

Check out “Here” below.
