Live from the 305: Season Two


Our music mini-series, Live from the 305, is back to bring you the best of the local music scene.  This time, we have partnered with Sundial to offer not only great performances that you can enjoy on your digital devices but also in-depth conversations with local artists. 

So mark your calendars:  twice a month -on the second and fourth Thursdays-, you get to enjoy a double feature. You can listen to a conversation on the radio with the performers during Sundial, at 1 p.m., and then see the artists in action on WLRN Facebook page or at Sundial's Facebook page, starting at 3:05 p.m. 

Grab your cafecito and join us!

The Miami-based group PALO! compares their music to the traditional Cuban stew ajiaco: It's a “mash up of stuff." Their sound combines Cuban, African American funk, Colombian and Puerto Rican sounds.

Guitarist Julian Harris and vocalist Julia Camayd form the heart and soul of the South Florida modern R&B group Soulpax.

Harris’ and Camayd’s musical connection began in high school during a music master class at the University of Miami. They were both students who were interested in attending Berklee College of Music in Boston to be taught by Livingston Taylor. Harris says he was looking for “opportunities to play and make music” and he found Camayd, “an amazing lyricist.”

Argentina-born Eduardo Lis has played in jazz groups across the world, but found a home for his music in South Florida.

The classically trained percussionist started his group “Eduardo Lis & Latin Jazz Menu” in Miami six months ago. The band’s unique style incorporates traditional jazz standards with Brazilian and Argentinian beats. Lis is inspired by Miami-based groups like Locos Por Juana and Spam All-Stars.

Broward County rapper Samuel "Sam Stan" Stanley, 22, raps about his lived experiences dealing with love and making it as a rapper in South Florida. He describes his style as “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air feel-good music with tons of positive vibes.” 

"I just want to be a glass of lemonade on a hot day. I just want to be refreshing. Cool vibes and feel good music," Stan told Sundial.

Miami’s Lemon City Trio (LCT) is bringing a fresh new meaning to the word funk.

Brian Robertson, 35, on organ; Nick Tannura, 28, on guitars and Aaron Glueckauf, 27, on drums are the musicians behind the funky jazz-soul sound that makes up Lemon City Trio. They met in Miami, decided to join forces to create a band and began rehearsing at a warehouse located in the Lemon City, a neighborhood in Miami that dates back to the mid-19th Century and overlaps now with Little Haiti.

Miami based artist Shira Lee is something of a renaissance woman.

She’s a folk and jazz musician in several different bands and an actress and a writer, playing a lead role in the recently released web-series GROWN, which follows the story of two young Haitian-American men making their way in Miami. Lee is also the brainchild behind the “Babawagon,” a mobile performance space here in South Florida funded by the Knight Foundation.
