MajorStudio is an indepentent Norwegian record company. MajorStudio is specializing in acoustic music with Norwegian lyrics. Through a close and warm relationship with it's artists, the company brings good Norwegian music products to the audience. This recipe has been maintained since the beginning and has brought success to several Norwegian artists.
MajorStudio started in 1988, by the foundation of TUMA Holding AS. Already in 1990 the company changed it's name to the present — MajorStudio. The reason for the change of name was the the acquisition of Slager Studios, also known as Rosenborg Studios. The studio was located in Majorstua in Oslo. The idea was to release records through MajorSelskapet og maintaining publishing business through MajorForlaget.
The studio was sold in 1999. Since then, MajorStudio has been established as a record company only, and from 2001, even with a division in Toten.
The first record was released in 1991, a rock record with the group Work Funny Hours. Since then, an average of 4 records have been released every year. The catalogue now counts more than 40 albums. Among these you will find several successes, the biggest by Vamp and Eriksen. The two artists have claimed four out of five Spellemanns-awards (the Norwegian Grammy). An impressive total of thirteen of the company's releases has been nominated for The Spellemann-award.
MajorStudio's strategy implies that 2-4 albums will be released on a yearly basis.
