Miles Walker

Grammy Award Winning Engineer

Miles Walker is a Grammy award-winning engineer with countless hits and multi-platinum records sold worldwide. With an extensive musical pedigree including attending North Carolina School of the Arts as a high school student and later attending the world-renown Berklee College of Music, Miles graduated from Berklee Magna Cum Laude in 2003. It was there at Berklee that Miles’ final career path would be solidified. “I figured I wanted to make music every day of my life…and as long as musicians were going to make music they are going to need someone to help them record it.”

Miles emerged from Berklee and made his way to Nashville where he cut his teeth making records on Music Row. His next move to follow his true calling down the pop path, landed him in the hub of R&B, hip-hop and pop music, Atlanta, Georgia. There he received a coveted assistant engineer position at the famed Patchwerk Studios and had the privilege to work with industry giants, Usher, Bryan Michael Cox, Jazze Pha, Young Jeezy, David Banner, and found a mentor in Grammy winning engineer Leslie Brathwaite. But one Atlanta resident in particular took great note of Miles, and soon Usher contracted him as a staff engineer for his Ush Records imprint. There he tracked his first hit single, “Get It Shawty,” by Lloyd as well as worked on many other records for Usher and his artists.

His hard work at Ush Records caught the attention of the extremely prominent producer, Sean Garrett, who tapped Miles to be his personal engineer. With Garrett, Miles garnered his first number one hit “Break Up” by Mario. Continuing his reign with Garrett throughout the late 2000’s, he engineered the number one hit single by Beyonce, “Diva,” as well as multiple smashes by the Pussycat Dolls, Britney Spears, Enrique Iglesias, Amerie, and Jesse McCartney.

From there Miles became one of the most sought after engineers in the business. In the last few years, he has teamed up with the illustrious production duo Stargate. With Stargate, he has engineered records for Rihanna, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, British pop group JLS, and the critically acclaimed newcomer Wiz Khalifa. He’s amassed five number one singles in the last year alone with Rihanna’s “Only Girl In The World,” “What’s My Name” and “S&M,” Katy Perry’s “Firework” and Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow.”
