Established in 2017 in Sydney, Australia, Top Dog Group was created as a dynamic, independent, music ecosystem framework - encompassing Artist & Producer Management / Record Label / Music Publishing / Merch / Consulting Services.
Over 3 years of organic growth, the company has been developing a world-class roster of clients and partners across all of the business verticals.
The company’s founder and CEO, Paul Paoliello, has injected 30 years of experience from working in senior/executive roles across Major and independent labels, publicly listed businesses and start-ups, cross continents to build a culture, team and roster for international consumption.
Since inception, TDG has achieved a number of milestones:
2017 Toyota Starmaker, Rachael Fahim enjoyed a multi-million streaming first single “Brake Lights” which led to a CMC Music Awards nomination and an EP aptly entitled “Iconic” that has now exceeded 10 million streams across ANZ and the US, which includes a duet with Sony Music artist Brad Cox.
The company represents multi-platinum, award winning, international Music Producer, Engineer and Mixer Craig Porteils (Guns n Roses, Cher, Ozzy Osbourne, Shannon Noll, Guy Sebastian, The Potbelleez).
TDG launched female country pop supergroup Southbound at a sold out Tamworth Music festival show in January 2020 and their current single “Find Our Way” featuring Shannon Noll is currently the #1 song at Country Radio, dethroning Keith Urban/Pink.
Peach PRC is the most recent management client to join TDG, one of Australia’s top TikTok stars who has just signed with US label Republic Records.
Australia’s favourite son, Shannon Noll has chosen TDG to help support and steer the next chapter of his career, kicking off with the #1 collaboration with Southbound, a Greyhound advertising campaign and a sold out tour across NSW.
While based in Australia, Top Dog Group has established a global footprint by partnering with like-minded and well established industry heavyweights like Kobalt, Believe, Sony Music and Universal Music, taking its artists and music to a truly worldwide audience.
