Learned My Lesson is the celebration of Zora Young's lifelong love affair with the blues.This is Zora's first album on an established American label which is surprising since she is one of the most creative blues singers in Chicago. Zora was born in West Point, Mississippi and raised in Chicago where she grew up singing gospel music in a south side church. After years in the R&B "chittlin circuit", she switched to blues and since then has shared the stage with B.B. and Albert King, played the Chicago Blues Festival many times and tours Europe regularly. Zora's voice ranges from a melancholy whisper to a rock 'n' roll scream, and she will have you in her corner with one listen. With this album Zora Young has finally arrived to claim her rightful place as a contemporary blues powerhouse.
