Not bad for a debut but...

I’ve been a skillet fan since I was 10 years old. 18 years later I feel like the band has only gotten better and better and Jen Ledger has definitely contributed to their success. So I was very excited to hear that she had a solo project coming out. I’d first like to say I enjoy listening to this album. It’s pretty catchy. But that’s about it, just catchy. Every song on this album is a fight/anthem rock song and too many artists these days are doing “fight song” types of music. I was hoping for something personal and relatable to HER personal experiences. But it just sounds like generic, cliche anthem rock. I kind of hate saying that cause I do admire and enjoy Jen Ledger. But this had potential to be so much better, and unique and it’s just not that. With lyrics like “never give up, never back down” I can’t say those lyrics haven’t been written and sung A thousand times.

Solid solo effort

So excited to see this from Jen Ledger. My favorite songs are Ruins and Foreigner, where she sounds the most unique and the least like her Skillet roots. It's going to be too easy for her to play it safe and mimic the Skillet formula, but artisticly she will be better off in the long run exploring her own sound. Ruins and Foreigner do just that, unlike anything you will hear from Skillet.

About LEDGER

U.S.-based English vocalist/drummer Jennifer Carole Ledger secured a life-changing role as the drummer of Christian hard rock outfit Skillet when she was still a teenager. After a decade with the band, she took her first steps as a solo artist with her debut EP, Ledger. Born in Coventry, England in 1989, Ledger moved to Wisconsin at 16. In addition to her high school studies, she also drummed with the band at her local church, which is where she was discovered by Skillet's husband-and-wife duo John and Korey Cooper. With the then-recent departure of their drummer Lori Peters, the Coopers encouraged Ledger to audition for the spot, which she got in 2008. From the church stage to arenas, Ledger's first outing with Skillet was on their Comatose Tour. Over the following decade, Ledger and the band released and toured behind Awake (2009), Rise (2013), and Unleashed (2016). In addition to her work behind the drum kit, Ledger also contributed vocals to each album with increased frequency. Under the guidance of the Coopers, she began to form ideas for a solo project as early as 2012. That music wouldn't be fully realized until 2018 with the release of her first effort, Ledger (Atlantic/Hear It Loud). Produced with Korey Cooper, the defiant set of pop-influenced rock anthems was elevated by Ledger's vocals, a stirring blend similar to Lacey Sturm, Cassadee Pope, and Hayley Williams. The set debuted just outside Billboard's Top 50, rising as high as number two on the Christian chart and number seven on the overall Rock ranking. To promote the EP, Ledger pulled double duty on the road, opening for (and later playing with) Skillet on their joy.UNLEASHED 2018 tour. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
