Violin, Mandolin & Songwriting Instructor
Aline has always been a trailblazer. At 11 years old she was the youngest first chair violist to perform for the Edmonton Youth Orchestra. At 15 she taught viola at a small music school in Cuzco, Peru. At 20 Aline was the first violinist to complete the Contemporary Music and Technology program at Selkirk College. Here she expanded on her classical training and mastered many styles such as Jazz, Latin, Bluegrass and Blues. At Selkirk she completed a double Major of Music Composition and Music Production & Sound Engineering. She works as a multi-instrumentalist performer and session musician on violin, mandolin, octave mandolin, acoustic guitar and voice. She has worked with musicians such as Cowboy Irie, Buckman Coe and Shred Kelly.
Aline is one of few women working full time as a professional live sound and studio engineer. She has worked as a house engineer at Blue Light Studio in Vancouver, a Lead Technician with Peak Technologies and as a freelance monitor and FOH engineer for live performances. She has engineered for artists such as the Boom Booms, Shawn Austin, Chris Ho and JP Maurice.
Most recently, Aline has started “Aline Deanna Jones Music and Sound”. A self powered music production company that is facilitating musicians in the Kootenays, interior BC, in creating professional content. In 2021 she produced Tenise Marie’s album “Storm” as well as Rumour Mill’s “Acoustic Sessions” and is currently in pre-production of her first Solo Album.
A myriad of interests have culminated her well rounded career as a musician, producer, teacher and sound engineer. Growing up immersed in her French Canadian and Doukhobor heritage has given her a unique appreciation for sharing and preserving culture through her music. Aline’s most recent undertaking, funded by the Canada Arts Council, is the creation of a collection of folk songs inspired by Doukhobor history and her family’s heritage.
Currently Aline splits her time between Nelson, BC and the Sunshine Coast. She tours with “Rumour Mill”, “ Lady Fingers” and her solo project “Aline Deanna”.
