The Notting Hill Music Group Limited is a truly international music publishing operation, based in London, Los Angeles & Nashville, with first-class representation in every corner of the globe. Founded in 1990 as the international repertoire division of the Japanese Nippon Television Music Corporation, it became Notting Hill Music following a successful management buyout in 1993 and has rapidly become one of the world’s leading independent music publishers.
