“I’ve been serious about music since I was a kid.” says Jeff Wilson, also known as Eviction; a renegade electronic musician, producer & performer based out of Calgary AB and formulary Halifax NS. “I used to listen to my mom’s old vinyl and play the Jimi Hendrix “Are You Experienced” album over, and over”.
When Jeff Wilson was in his funk, rock band Traffic Jam, fans could find him playing lead guitar and sporting a big curly afro at the age of fifteen. This was around the same time he started playing the local bar circuit in and around Saint John, NB. “My parents used to drop me us off at bar gigs and pick us up at 2am!” His first professional release was an independently produced CD titled Traffic Jam “Funkacoholics Anonymous”, and at only sixteen his music could be found in surf films that graced the screens at the Sundance Film Festival.
In 2007, after attending Yamaha School of Music in Toronto, Jeff taught guitar at the Atlantica School of Music in Saint John, New Brunswick for 2 years. He worked with Ole Records on the Canadian Idol Top 10 tour traveling and playing lead guitar with Brandon Jones and Chad Doucette, among others. After Graduating high school, Jeff then decided to attend St. Francis Xavier University to study jazz guitar full time. This is where his musical creativity morphed into what is now Eviction.
Starting as a small time deejay in 2008, eviction’s productions soon propelled him into becoming a frontrunner in the east coast deejay scene. His unique style and ear for music made it easy for Eviction to stand out among an ever-growing east coast deejay market. His aggressive approach to making music have helped Eviction become one of Canada’s top developing producers and deejays. He’s known for selling out shows of in every city, town, club or festival in Atlantic Canada. He is also a regular headliner at Evolve Festival.
