At 11:30 Mark welcomes Buck Wimberly who performs as Buck Moon an LGBTQ artist & singer-songwriter who started his life in rural Texas growing up Southern Baptist. Being raised in smaller communities brought challenges for a young, creative, closeted gay kid, pushing Buck to hide parts of himself to minimize bullying, be accepted by his church community, and feel loved by family and friends. Buck eventually came out at 33 after overcoming depression and has since been on a journey of self-discovery. Now in his forties, having raised two boys, and happily living with his life partner, he has been working on healing past traumas through shamanic experiences, expanded consciousness, and discovering the power of the medicine found within music. Buck’s first single “Indigo Night” was released on January 23, 2024. Buck and his partner Joey Mendez are the owners of ULAH Men’s Apparel & Lifestyle Store, and LUNA by ULAH, and ULAH Home furnishings + Design. Every Month they host ULAH Live Sessions with You Found Music in an intimate performance with limited seating for 30 people. On Wednesday, February 14, at 8:00pm, ULAH Live Sessions presents Nathan Corsi and My Atomic Daydream, at ULAH, 4707 Rainbow Blvd., Westwood, KS.
