Trolls Of Amsterdam

North Augusta musician Stephen Wilson brings funk-soaked rock on Wilson Drive, his second album under the moniker Trolls of Amsterdam.

Growing up in Hampton, S.C., Wilson played in various groups in the 1990s in and out of Charleston, and in his 25 years as musician he’s performed with greats like The Blues Brothers, The Wailers and James Brown, who is Wilson’s single-biggest influence.

The 10 new tracks consist of Wilson’s original songs written across some 18 years, plus reworked material from back when Trolls’ was a three-piece with drummer Armon Cabana and auxiliary musician Stefan Drobel out of Half Moon Bay, California.
