Worra has announced her ‘Just Because’ headline tour, spanning 23 dates across the US from May to July. For each date on the run, $2 per ticket and a portion of her own fee will be donated to a local non-profit in everymarket, with J. Worra donating an additional portion of her profit to The Trevor Project for each festival date on the run.
‘Bounce Back’ arrives as a bass-fuelled house anthem featuring Sophiegrophy’s swaggy rap verses over weighty subs. J. Worra and Codes layer on the jamming percussion, transforming the 90s-tinged groove into a dance floor weapon.

J. Worra on what ‘Just Because’ means to her – “This tour is all about giving something back. Merging the worlds of philanthropy and supporting causes that are bigger than ourselves. I have selected a charity for each city we are visiting, with a focus on LGBTQ support, food accessibility, animal rescue/anti-cruelty, suicide prevention and more. For club shows, $2 from every ticket sold along with a portion of my fee will go to the charity selected for that city. For festivals, a donation will be made to The Trevor Project for each festival play between May & July. See you guys on the dance floor!”
