Jwahari(pronounced Wa-ha-ree) is Royce Hall, is an artist like none

acoustic guitarist, and percussionist in general. Jwahari, a 25 year old

songwriters, Jwahari, conceives lyrics for a variety of mainstream and
underground hip-hop ,soul, jazz, funk, r&b, gospel, afro
beat, house, lounge, and blues artists/vocalists, leaving not one genre untouched by
her unearthly effect. Her music is a canvas of
invigorating testimonies, political consciousness, evolution and thelove experience (from various angles). Not only is Jwahari is Royce Hall a musical artist but a model as well. As a member of Images Modeling Troupe c/o Florida A&M University, she was able to defy the hesitation of many other modeling troupes weary of women baring masculine identities in their personal and public lives. Her first runway show as a member of Images was Spring 2005, with preceeding shows beginning Summer 2004. She has and continues to be blessed with opportunities of serving as the photographic subject for a variety of photographers,including but not limited to,photographers Joshua King(Atlanta,GA), Kim Roseberry(Atlanta,GA), Maurice Wiggins(Tallahassee, FL)
and Jennifer Jefferson(Atlanta,GA).
Via this website I wish to network with other photographers and models in order to continue pursuing my desires as a model. A model of versatility but also a model going against the grains of tradition and normalcy when it comes to gender and sexuality.
**I am more than willing to travel.
