Jen Ledger


Jen Ledger was born 8th December 1989 and is English drummer and co-vocalist for the American Christian rock and hard rock band Skillet. At the age of 18 she became Skillet's drummer, when their former drummer Lori Peters retired.

She was born in Coventry, England, and started playing the drums when she was 13. She played drums in a local band and was a finalist for the United Kingdom Drummer of the Year competition in 2006. She relocated to the United States at age 16 to major in drums with a scholarship at Living Light School of Worship in Kenosha, Wisconsin. She joined the band The Spark, but since the band already had a drummer, she played bass.

The band members of Skillet discovered Ledger when they attended church services in a city  where she lived at the time. They toured the school she was attending and asked Ledger to audition for an open drummer spot in the band. The rest is history as they say. She has been Skillet's drummer and female vocalist since she was 18 years old, beginning with the "Comatose Tour".

In 2012 Ledger and band mate Korey Cooper began to write music for her own pop-influenced solo-project album.

In March 2018, it was announced that her debut EP, Ledger, is scheduled to be released in April.She has signed a deal with Atlantic Records and Hear it Loud, the imprint launched by Skillet's John and Korey Cooper and manager Zachary Kelm. Ledger was produced by Korey Cooper along with writer and producer Seth Moseley. Ledger was named the opening act for Skillet's Unleashed tour.
