One of MTA’s strengths is being able to offer an attractive alternative for acts who don’t quite fit into the rock or pop categories. ”Call MTA, They know the folk scene” has become a common suggestion when artists want to explore stages and scenes other than the most familiar ones. Folk is just one example. One might as well say blues, world, or jazz.
IN 2000, HILDA FOUNDED MTA PRODUCTION AB.
MTA stands for Music, Theatre and Arts. Ever since childhood, Hilda had been very interested in creating dramatic theatre and music, both on stage and behind the scenes. She was eager to learn more about all parts of the creative process. After several attempts to be accepted into the
Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts, Hilda decided to start a production company with the initial aim to provide a platform for her own drama pieces and music productions. It was soon to become a lot more than that.
Slowly, but surely, MTA evolved into a production company specialized on creating, producing and booking tours and concerts. “II decided to work with the entire process: creating the artistic content, and working with marketing, as well as creating my own corporate culture”.
The company has grown into a creative booking and programming agency.
Today, MTA Production has all the requirements to successfully handle tours, marketing album releases as well as program festivals on stages around the world.
Together with artist Sofa Karlsson, MTA Production started record label Sally Wiola Records.
During the last eight years, they have produced the both successful and critically acclaimed Christmas show ”Jul i Folkton”. Sally Wiola Music has also released some of Sofa Karlsson’s own albums, Blues Detour by the “supergroup” of the same name, consisting of Ale Moller, Eric Bibb and Knut Reiersrud. The label’s most recent release is a Trilogy Sally Wiola Sessions part 1 and part 2. Part One “Pianosolos” is by Swedish pianist Martin Hederos (The Soundtrack of Our Lives, Tonbruket, duo with Nina Persson (Cardigans). Part two is Lisas “Fiddle and Accordeon Conversations” (violinist Lisa Rydberg accordionist Lisa Långbacka). Part three is Sofa Karlssons ”Guitar stories”. The Vision is a coherent trilogy with acoustic instrumental music we call Slow Music. Handcrafted and organic Music.
FOR NOW AND IN THE FUTURE MTA IS AN AGENCY AS WELL AS AN BUREAU FOR CREATIVE IDEAS IN CULTURE, MUSIC AND ARTS.
