Music is a powerful vehicle that can change lives, and few wield that power with more passion and skill than Jen Ledger. After a decade as the drummer for multi-platinum rockers Skillet, the talented Brit has toured the world and has unleashed her own musical vision with her debut EP, LEDGER.
Skillet / LEDGER
Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceMy first ever performance with Skillet in the UK was opening up for Nickelback in the London O2 arena. Having left England at 16 years old, it was so surreal and special to come back years later - not only opening for band I had grown up listening to - but to be playing drums in a band that I felt so proud of. It was humbling, surreal, exciting and an experience I will always remember.
What Drives Your Creativity?My faith and passion to bring hope to hurting people is what drives me creatively. Music and art has the ability to reach people in the darkest of places. It’s able to bring hope, it empowers, and it reminds people that they’re not alone. Life sometimes feels like a fight- and music is one of the small ways I can help encourage people along the way.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?I will always use Vic Firth because VF products stand alone when it comes to quality and consistency. With my schedule being so crazy, and always being on the run full time touring - there is nothing more valuable than having dependable products. Vic Firth excels in all of the above. It’s the highest quality, consistency, and dependability that you are going to find in the musician’s marketplace.
