PLW Entertainment Ltd is an independent record label based in Melbourne, Australia. Operations include music production, artist management, publishing and digital distribution. History PLW Productions was established in 1997 by Paul Wiltshire as a one-man operation, writing and producing music from a studio set up in his own lounge room. Within the year he progressed from doing simple demos and band tracks for off-the-street clients to working with some of the biggest names in the Australian music industry. Through his doors over the next few years came the likes of Vanessa Amorosi, Delta Goodrem, Mark Holden, Marcia Hines and Ross Wilson. Later the company expanded into a purpose built recording studio in Port Melbourne. This move brought more diverse work, including TV and radio advertising and several albums for artists including Tania Doko (of Bachelor Girl), Mike Brady and Monique Brumby.
It was at this stage that Paul explored the world of artist development, creating several acts, one of which was a young vocalist named Tali, when he successfully created an alliance with Michael Gudinski’s label, Liberation Music. Tali was released in 2001 and enjoyed media support and high rotation airplay on major radio networks throughout Australia. It was also that year which saw Paul work with US-based production team The Matrix. As a result of this association, Paul was signed to Sandy Roberton of Worlds End America, one of the largest Producer Managers in the U.S. In 2003 Paul teamed up with songwriter Victoria Wu and PLW Studios began operating out of Los Angeles. Over the next few years, the pair went on to write and produce for artists such as The Backstreet Boys and for contestants from the Australian Idol TV Series. In 2006 a new PLW office was established in South Melbourne, Australia. The newly-named PLW Entertainment Limited, now an unlisted public company, expanded to include artist management, publishing and digital distribution alongside production services.
