Learned My Lesson is the celebration of Zora Young'slifelong love affair with the blues.This is Zora's first album on anestablished American label which is surprising since she is one ofthe most creative blues singers in Chicago. Zora was born in WestPoint, Mississippi and raised in Chicago where she grew up singinggospel music in a south side church. After years in the R&B"chittlin circuit", she switched to blues and since then has sharedthe stage with B.B. and Albert King, played the Chicago BluesFestival many times and tours Europe regularly. Zora's voice rangesfrom a melancholy whisper to a rock 'n' roll scream, and she willhave you in her corner with one listen. With this album Zora Younghas finally arrived to claim her rightful place as a contemporaryblues powerhouse.
