Over the past 30 years, Miles Wilkinson has taken a unique journey as a
musician, recording engineer and record producer from his home in Toronto to Los Angeles to Minneapolis and now his current surroundings in Nashville, TN.

Miles started his career as a lead guitarist for Canadian recording artist Anne Murray, which led to a long and fruitful relationship as a recording engineer for producer Brian Ahern. Miles engineered and mixed Anne Murray's first 10 Capitol albums resulting in a gold album for "Snowbird" and a platinum album for her "Greatest Hits" album.

When Brian Ahern decided to move to Los Angeles in the early 70's, he brought Miles along. During this time, Brian acquired one of the first state-of-the-art mobile recording trucks in the U.S. called the Enactron Truck. Miles helped design this recording facility which included an actual recording room within the truck.

At this time, Brian started to produce ground breaking records with Emmylou Harris for Warner/Reprise. Miles was instrumental in engineering and mixing Emmylou's first 4 Warner/Reprise albums, a gold album for 1975's "Elite Hotel", and two Ampex Golden Reel Awards for engineering excellence for Emmylou's "Luxury Liner" LP and "Profile/Best of Emmylou Harris" album.

Before leaving Los Angeles, Miles engineered the remote recording for the Barbra Streisand/Kris Kristofferson movie "A Star is Born" with Phil Ramone which earned an Academy Award nomination for sound. He also engineered the remote recording for the Bette Midler film "The Rose".

Miles decided to make the move to Nashville to get involved, in not just engineering, but producing on a grander scale. The past 6 years has found Miles not only designing, managing and staff engineering EMI Publishing's recording studio, but engineering various portions of Willie Nelson's "Stardust" album, re-mixing Waylon Jennings' last RCA LP, as well as engineering various tracks for Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, Suzy Boggus, Roseanne Cash and Rodney Crowell.

During his tenure at EMI studios, Miles has produced and/or engineered demos for Billy Dean, Duane Eddy, Verlon Thompson and Suzi Ragsdale to name a few.
