Following their love of music, Tina Bradshaw and Andrew Gallagher are friends, business partners and now co-owners of a new business in Vernon, the Rusty Hill. The shop combines country décor, country music, instrument sales, music lessons and a recording studio. Bradshaw creates custom rustic signs with song lyrics that are sold in the shop. The sale of an American flag rustic sign will contribute 20% of the purchase price to the neighboring Vernon VFW.

The country music influence is prevalent with both Gallagher and Bradshaw. They are leads in their band, Whiskey Crossing and also have a record label called Whiskey Hill. Bradshaw hosts a radio show called Rockin’ Country with T. on Vernon radio 107.9.

“I’ve been singing my whole life and I’m self-taught on the guitar,” Bradshaw said.

She writes music and lyrics and as a stage 3 cancer survivor she” Believes music has givien her a second chance.”

Gallagher has been studying and playing music for 20 years and has also studied the process of music recording. He has performed on TV and Broadway, done commercials, has recorded in Atlanta and Nashville and toured worldwide with the Sussex County Choir.

The Rusty Hill’s studio doubles as a recording venue and provides a space for music lessons.

“Our dream is to promote music to area youth,” stated Gallagher.

A bonus offered by the Rusty Hill for interested young musicians with a student ID is the mastering, mixing and recording of three new songs for $135.

“We would like to be the local music shop,” Bradshaw commented.

The Rusty Hill hopes to work with Vernon schools to provide musical accessories for students instead of shopping out of town. Bradshaw and Gallagher are excited to announce afternoon free concerts beginning on-site in May.

The Rusty Hill is located in a building built in 1847 on Route 94 next door to the Vernon VFW. For further information, call 973-737-4170 or email whiskeycrossing@gmail.com
