Aselin Debison is a very beautiful and talented young Canadian. She has released 3 albums before even graduating high school and is now in the process of completing a fourth. Thankfully she was able to take some time out of her busy schedule to sit down with me and share what she has been up to.
Aselin you have been pretty quiet for the past few years, what have you been up to?
---Well I graduated from high school and got into university. Iíve been writing, growing up, and just enjoying life!
What are you taking in University?
--- Iím doing a Human Kinetics degree, which I love, and then Iíll do an Education degree when I finish that.
Do people recognize you there?
---Not really, I havenít done much for a few years now, and a lot of the time if youíre not in the spot light, people forget about you. There was this one guy in a couple of my classes, he ended up doing a paper on the university and found my name under a list of ďinfluential peopleĒ (There words, not mine LOL) who have attended the school. Then he asked me about it, which was kind of funny.
Congrats on your engagement! Have you set a date yet?
--- Weíre thinking summer time, probably two years from now.
How did he propose?
---Jonathan took me back to where we had our first date, at the Savoy Theatre. He had told me he forgot a music book there as he was working with kids in the Battle of the Band competition, so I believed him. He sat down in the theatre in the same seats we had been in on our first date, and asked me in the empty theatre! It was perfect.
Both you and Jonathan are from Cape Breton, are you planning on having the wedding there?
--- Thatís the plan. Because weíre both from here, most of our family is here, so it makes the most sense.
You and Jonathan both have such a love for music and are very musically talented. Can we expect Jonathan to play a large role in the upcoming album?
---Jonathan and I have been writing together. Donít be surprised to see some music we wrote on the new CD, and youíll see him on the road.
Are the two of you planning on starting a family any time soon?
---Not anytime soon. Iím 19 and heís 23. I want to have all my education under my belt before I think about starting a family.
Is there any chance that we will be seeing you performing at this years ECMA's?
---Iím not sure, Iíd love to, especially since there in Sydney again.
Before we go there is just one last question. What kind of message do you want to give your younger fans?
---Never give up. Always reach for the stars and hold on to your dreams. Those are things that are important as you grow up, because sometimes things change and [youíre] not always sure about everything in life. **
