J. Worra: Hard Work And Being True

J. Worra also known as Jamie Sitter has had a life-long love affair with music, no matter the genre. Her early days go back to her home city of Chicago where she held multiple residencies at Spybar and The Mid. Afterwards, she moved on to Los Angeles, now her home base. Sitter cites Green Velvet, Gene Harris, Chris Lake and Billy Kenny as her biggest influencers and when asked how she wants to impact the music industry-she’ll likely respond with “I want the tone, I want to show what women are capable of, and what hard work and being true looks like, and above all, I want to impact peoples lives in a positive way.” It’s a good mantra and it seems to be paying off with nods of recognition from media major outlets including Insomniac, Mixmag and a DJ Mag Breakthrough Producer of the Year nomination. Sitter has releases through Insomniac’s In/Rotation, Sweat It Out, Perfect Driver and Mau5trap, so be sure to check them out.  Recent tracks include “On The Run” featuring Vanessa Michaels and Kaleena Zanders and two projects for Mau5trap, Deadmau5 included: “Are You Not Afraid” and “Ride Or Cry.” Name a festival and she’s probably played it. Her past itinerary is very impressive with dates at Groove Cruise, Spring Awakening, Dirtybird Campout, Lightning In a Bottle, HARD, CRSSD, Beyond Wonderland, Holy Ship!, Splash House, EDC, and Coachella. Future releases will be forthcoming sometime in 2020 via In Thrive, a subsidiary of Capital Records. She’s also launched her own imprint Arrow Recordings showcasing and releasing collaborations with artists that like to push the boundaries. Word has it that Sitter will also launch Arrow Clothing- offering unique fashion forward designs. When she’s not making music, Jamie can be found with her Bischon Poodle “Peter,” cooking- a favorite past time-and devoting time to charitable organizations addressing the needs of Mental Health, the LGBTQ youth community and animal rescue. Some say she’s the very definition of strong women being part of a male dominated industry and a disrupter of norms. I agree. I also have to note that being passionate and finding time for social issues she believes in also needs to spotlighted. There it is.
