Praise for the breakthrough album continues to pour in from fans and critics alike. Here's what the critics are saying...

"The collection is fraught with intelligently poetic lyrics, prose that weave a curious sense of searching for something much greater than ourselves. Ultimately, LEDGER shows abundant heaps of promise for this talented woman as a solo artist...For these reasons, CrypticRock give (LEDGER) 5 of 5 stars." - CrypticRock

"(LEDGER) encapsulates every moment within my faith journey where I had to decide if I was going to give into fear or continue the fight." - Smart Cookie Philes

"The exciting new project is a compelling blend of Skillet-esque rock anthems with pop influences all her own." - CCM Magazine

"Without hesitation, LEDGER is a strong EP - bold, unashamed, and full of potential. This is Jen Ledger at her best - it is fantastic to hear her unleash everything across each of these tracks. There's a word to perfectly summarize this collection: power." - TheChristianBeat

"LEDGER is a project you can tell Jen Ledger poured her heart and soul into. It's a journey we're lucky to have the opportunity to travel on with her. Her voice is angelic and stronger than ever." - The Front Row Report

Here's what the fans are saying...

"Couldn't wait for it to come out! (LEDGER) does not disappoint! I love every song!" - aprilmrigril

"Just purchased and can't stop listening!!!" - Auntiekk 44
