Artist Biography:
Bittersweet Highway is the singer-songwriter duo of Rene’ Janiece and Wayne McKinzie. They hail from a thriving metropolis of 13 that scratches the border of Southern Colorado and Northern New Mexico. Living and traveling along the edges of America, theirs is music that rises from the fringes, in place and in style. It crosses genres and blends the sounds that have influenced these two as individuals, combining to create something strikingly original. It is no wonder they call their particular brand of music “Borderland Americana.” And this Borderland Americana is also artful Americana – visually evocative and carefully crafted. This is music that is thought about, and music that makes us think. More importantly, this is music that urges us to feel. Poetic lyrics. Smooth, resonant vocals. Surprising phrasing. Wanderlust and loss, longing and belonging, irony and epiphany rise and fall through imagery and sound as varied and wide as the land they call home.
