He only began learning guitar and composing songs as a University of Guelph student.
There are five nominees in the category. The winner will be announced March 30.
Jordan visited today on my CFRU Radio program From the Second Storey. We talked about his nomination, his singing and songwriting, his faith and his commitment to social justice, and his travels as entertainer aboard cross-Canada trains. And we played a couple of tunes from his album — plus Jordan brought along his guitar to play a couple of other songs not on the recording.
