#Rockpicks June 2018
Just discovered this self-titled solo EP project from Skillet drummer, Jen Ledger.
Titled “Ledger”, the 6 track EP was released April 13 through Hear It Loud, a label imprint launched by Skillet frontman John Cooper and his wife. Ledger’s debut truly showcases the beauty and depth of her talents – delivering powerful rock to soft delicate vocals. Songwriting and lyrics are brilliantly constructed, both relevant and honest.
Looking forward to future releases from her solo project.
