Biography

The Wild Northern is an indie-rock quintet split between Boston, MA and New York City.​

TWN is Roland Eckstein, Brian Gallagher, Andy Guerini, Jim Abdon, and Jim “Big Cat” Fitzgerald. The band finds inspiration in late night NYC dives, mythical American frontier animals, 12-year Highland Malts, and buffalo chicken pizzas, among other things.


After breaking ground on their discography with The Line of Demarcation EP in 2011, the band began building its fanbase in the Northeastern US with shows centering around Boston and New York City.

The following Summer, the guys set to work on their debut full length, The Whiskey Season, which they released January 5, 2013, backed by a strong kickstarter campaign and incredible support from family and friends. They are currently hard at work on their latest EP, in Brockton, MA.

Eckstein’s writing echoes the ancient longing to make something worthwhile while we’re here. Reticence be damned. Strongly influenced by his musical beginnings, rooted in Sea Bright and Asbury Park, NJ. A folk-heart, his lyrics tell of overindulgent city nights, Wes Anderson films, and necromantic love. And, of course, always make their way back to the sea.
