Another featured artist spotlight! @its_tempo

Jordan Farmer (he/him) is the interim general manager of the Bus Stop Theatre Co-Op for 2021. Known professionally as Tempo, Jordan is a multifaceted creative entrepreneur based out of Kjipuktuk, Mi’kma’ki (Halifax, Nova Scotia). Starting as a dancer, Jordan practiced with Concrete Roots, The Woods and Unity Charity, developing a strong sense of community. Equipped with a thorough understanding and connection to music, this fuelled the need to take control of the very language that influenced his movement, ultimately resulting in the transition to production. Making the jump to music, the 2021 HopScotch All Styles judge has since dedicated his craft to becoming more involved in projects advocating for racial equality and artistic freedom throughout the community. Most recently featuring as one of the anchor artists in the @driftedcollective performance for Nocturne.
