The Broken String Band is a folk rock band founded in 2015[1] in the city of Athens, Georgia by Sean Patrick Stephansen and Taylor Thompson.[2] Influenced by the likes of the Avett Brothers and the Lumineers, the group describes themselves as a group that "...excites your senses with thrashing banjos, iconic harmonies, stompy percussion, sentimental lyricism, and a live energy that provides appropriate extremes of ups and downs for a show that is as electrifying as it is moving.".[3] The group later added the rhythm section of Laura Camacho and John Phillips from the Argentine Tango music group, the Athens Tango Project.[4]

The group has released an EP titled Prologue: Somebody's Daughter that features Sean Patrick Stephansen on banjo and vocals, Taylor Thompson on guitar and vocals, Laura Camacho on upright bass, John Phillips on percussion, and Teresa Grynia on violin.[5]
