Biography

Skillet is an American Christian rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996. The band currently consists of husband and wife John (lead vocals, bass) and Korey Cooper (rhythm guitar, keyboards, backing vocals), along with Jen Ledger (drums, vocals) and Seth Morrison (lead guitar). The band has released eight albums, two receiving Grammy nominations: Collide and Comatose.

Skillet went through several lineup changes early in their career, leaving founder John Cooper as the only original member remaining in the band. Their most recent album, Awake, has now been certified Platinum and debuted on Number 2 on the Billboard Top 200, with Comatose certified Gold by RIAA. They have sold over 2 million albums in the U.S. alone and are known for a relentless touring schedule, which garnered them the number two ranking in the Hardest Working Bands of 2011 by Billboard.com. The band headlined the number one tour in music, Winter Jam, during the first half of 2012. They are planning on releasing their 9th Studio Album in early 2013.
