Jim Lord, Singer/Songwriter James Edward Lord III (born 7 September 1948), known as Jim Lord, is an American folk/rock singer/songwriter and musician. Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, Lord's early influences included such artists as James Taylor and Leonard Cohen. Later, Lord became inspired by artists of the British folk/blues revival, especially Bert Jansch and Ralph McTell, and moved to London in 1974 to explore the folk music scene. While there, he performed throughout Britain as a headliner and also shared the bill with such artists as Bert Jansch, Tim Hardin and Elvis Costello. After returning to the United States, Lord shared the bill with such artists as Richie Havens, The Rowan Brothers, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, Sam & Dave, Vassar Clements, Albert King and Brewer & Shipley, among others. Lord's first album “Inside Out”, produced by former “Fugs’ guitarist Ken Pine and released on the Inlet Records label in October 1982, was a Billboard Magazine Top Billboard Album Pick (recommended LP). Lord's second album “Hangdog Heaven”, released on the Blue Vinyl Records label in March 2000 and produced by Ken Pine and Larry Gates, was characterized by the New York Post as a "...dozen-song man-and-a-guitar disc [that] freely crosses the borders of folk rock, contemporary country and old-fashioned jazz guitar." Influences include Bert Jansch, Ralph McTell, James Taylor, Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits.
