Kim is super professional and just great at what she does. She's dependable, smart, and doesn't settle. She makes sure we are happy with our monitor mix rather than making us settle. And she doesn't just set the front of house mix and walk away. She makes sure that throughout the show, the sound out front is as close to perfect as she can get it. I wish more sound people were like her! We hire her any chance we get.
We have been thankful to have Kim running one of the stages for our Spotlight615 showcase at Tin Roof Broadway over the last two years. Time is of essence for our event, rotating nine acts, in 4.5 hours, between two stages - and she is a PRO. Full band set-ups, flip-flopped in 20-minute change-overs. Her efficiency and knowledge of her craft make Kim a valuable element to the success of our show. She always provides us with an amazing sound - loud enough for the band to rock, properly mixed to allow the fans to hear the original lyrics an artist has poured their soul into writing. She takes her time to understand what you're looking for and successfully delivers a home run every time.
Kim is the best! Her mixing stands out and her vocal EQ’s are always my favorite. It’s very evident she cares about what she is doing. Taking the time to make sure everything is on point. If only she could come to all my gigs!
Kim Wheeler is not only an exemplary live sound, mixing & recording engineer, but also an absolute joy to work with. She is the perfect balance of meticulously organized and flexible, able to come into a studio and hit the ground running. She takes the extra time to make sure she is getting the precise sounds the artist wants to ensure the highest quality final product. Another unique strength of hers is her range of experience with vastly different genres. She's able to connect with the artist, understand their vision, and make it a reality. I would trust her with any of my future projects and highly recommend to any artist looking for a quality engineer.
Kim is such a pro. She's so easy to work with, calm under pressure, a quick troubleshooter, and super knowledgeable. I know I'm pretty picky about my monitor mix, but she's a magician at making it perfect. Her sense of eq and compression is amazing and makes everything feel so natural even in situations where the equipment isn't ideal. It's obvious she really cares about the mix and does everything she can to make it sound the best that it can be.
Kim is ALWAYS a pleasure to work with. Her vision for live sound has helped to create some of the most memorable shows I have ever been a part of. Above all else she is a PRO and treats everyone with respect, even in the most stressful of situations.
I started mastering Kim Wheeler’s work about 3 years ago. Her mixing has developed from good to great in that period of time. She’s got a solid sense of composition and placement, which translates to clarity and dimension in her work.

Worked with Kim recently? Leave a few words about your experience. Nothing helps more in choosing an engineer than recommendations from other artists and music professionals.
