Jennifer Ledger

Drummer Lori Peters of Christian rock band Skillet has left the band. In a letter to fans, Skillet lead singer and founder John Cooper explains the reason was that "she felt that it was time for her to come off the road and start a new chapter in her life."

Currently on tour with Skillet is new drummer Jen Ledger. Not much has been mentioned about her, except that she is 18 and from England. No information on any previous bands or tours she has been with.

However, a search online reveals she was one of the top 12 finalists in the 2006 UK Young Drummer of the Year competition. Her bio for that competition reads as follows:

Jennifer, from Coventry, started playing the drums roughly three and a half years ago, following encouragement from her  older brother.  Following in his footsteps, she joined the church band at the age of 13.  At first, she comments,  drumming was just for fun, but recently her drum tutor, Simon Alexander, has inspired her to take it further. Now it is not just a hobby, but a huge part of her life!

Jennifer has been involved with several bands and currently fills the seat for no less than three.  She was recently involved with a Guinness World Record attempt for endurance drumming along with the other drum students from Nexus Academy.  They were successful in drumming for fifty-two hours and fifteen minutes each, smashing the world record.   Jennifer commented that she was to find out that she had got into the top forty, let alone the top twelve, as she was not particularly pleased with her DVD!  She plans to give her all in this competition and will be using this opportunity in any way that she can.

She did not win but did impress the judges as well as became only the second woman to ever make the final 12.
