SKILLET‘s drummer Jen Ledger will release her new project, Ledger, on April 13th. While this is the drummer’s first solo EP, it still will be a family affair as the project will be released via Hear It Loud/ Atlantic, a label owned by Skillet lead singer John Cooper and his wife, the group’s keyboardist Korey Cooper.
Ledger explained how the Cooper’s have helped her and what fans can expect during an interview with Billboard. She said, “Over the last couple of years, the Coopers have really been training me, helping me on my writing and really helping me find my own unique style . . . I’m not just mini-SKILLET. I’m edgy and rocky, but I’m also soft and got a little bit of pop in me too. They’ve been helping me find out not only who I am musically, but also who I am as a person and what do I want to say.”
Ledger’s tracklisting will include: “Not Dead Yet,” “Warrior,” “Bold,” “Foreigner,” “Ruins” and “Iconic.”
Ledger will also be pulling double duty during SKILLET’s upcoming tour which kicks off on April 12th in Texas. She will serve as the opening act with her own band then perform with SKILLET in her usual role as the drummer.
