North Carolinian band By Jove began as a middle school project in 2005 when lead guitarist Elliot Baggett and drummer Jonathan McGee met bassist Inëz Czymbor at their church in Raleigh, North Carolina. A trio was formed with Inëz Czymbor (then Samantha Chambers) picking up the roles of vocalist, pianist, and rhythm guitarist. The band, which has gone under many names and switched out members several times, was finally able to release their first EP after the high school graduation of Inëz Czymbor and Elliot Baggett in 2010.
Former member Joshua McGee, older brother of Jonathan McGee, played lead guitar during 2007 and most of 2008 when the band played under the name Puck’s Thyme. When Joshua McGee graduated, the band dispersed until Inëz Czymbor and Elliot Baggett began to work together again as a singer-guitarist duo in the Fall of 2009 as The Vintage. When drummer Jonathan McGee rejoined the group in May of 2010, the trio finally decided on their current name, By Jove.
The current lineup of By Jove consists of the original members. Elliot Baggett plays lead guitar and sings backup vocals on “Eighteen” and “All I Ask” on the band’s More Honest Than They Seem – EP, Jonathan McGee plays percussion, and Inëz Czymbor plays bass, guitar on the “One of These Days” track, piano, and sings lead vocals. Currently, the band is taking a break while Elliot Baggett is on mission work and Inëz Czymbor is attending college.
