bittersweet highway. . .


Borderland Americana
"music from the fringes"



Welcome to the internet home of Bittersweet Highway and County Road Records!  So glad you've found us! 

We are Rene' Janiece and Wayne McKinzie - a singer-songwriter duo
living at the base of the Grand Mesa in Western Colorado.

Here, you'll find background on who we are and how we got started - as well as what we might be up to next.

Check out our music page to download our albums, individual songs,
or to order a physical copy of our new EP - It All Falls Away.

We hope you visit often for updates on events, videos, photos, new song demos,
and information on how to bring us to a venue near you!

This is the place for all-around updates as we wander this road.

Summer is here!

We have settled in to our new home in Cedaredge
Please check in for upcoming events, some new music, and who-knows-what-else (as it seems to go).

We hope you'll join us as we explore some new directions.


We sat down recently to talk with Don Benjamin from the Delta County Independent.

See what he had to report about how we got started and what brought us to where we are now.
