Arts Monongahela presents “Perspectives on the Opioid Crisis” Musical Reflections

About this Event

Arts Monongahela is hosting “Perspectives on the Opioid Crisis” at 201 High St for the month of March, 2019. This show will feature over 25 visual artists sharing work representing their own perspectives on the opioid crisis impacting individuals and families across West Virginia and elsewhere.

In conjunction with the art show, on March 27, from 7 to 9 p.m., the final event of the month will be an evening of music with Cody Clayton Eagle who is a seventeen-year-old singer/songwriter from Morgantown. While his passion lies with country music, influenced by artists such as Chris Stapleton, Cody Jinks and Luke Combs, Cody also enjoys performing other popular music genres.

In his short, yet quickly growing career, this young, rising country star has shared the stage with George Shingleton, Charles W. Godwin and Sam Morrow. Most notably, Cody auditioned and earned a spot as a contestant on American Idol, set to air on March 3, 2019. He is currently writing and recording new songs for an upcoming release.

Joining Cody will be Shane Masters, a recent addition to the music scene here in Morgantown. He strayed from music early in life to raise a family and did not pick up a guitar again until nearly twenty years later. His talent and love for music have made him a busy man, now working all the bars, festivals, pubs, and clubs that would have him. He considers himself lucky to be doing what he is doing and is looking forward to the rest of his life as a singer/songwriter.

Brandhi Gafeney will also join the above musicians for the final evening of music. Brandhi is Director of Music & Arts at Jacob’s Ladder Rehabilitation facility.

Originally from Benton Harbor, Michigan, Brandhi proudly served in the U.S. Army traveling abroad with significant time spent in Korea and Germany. As a songwriter and musician, he has published two musical projects, the last of which was an innovative project where he recorded 10 songs and painted a series of oil paintings inspired by the tracks. Those works have been displayed in London, England, and Barcelona, Spain.

Brandhi received a life coaching certification in 2014 and has always believed that music possesses healing qualities and that it is the universal language of the human race. Brandhi is currently pursuing a music therapy degree at West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV, where he lives with his wife and their four children.

This event is free of charge.
