Bittersweet Highway is a singer-songwriter duo hailing from a thriving metropolis of fourteen that scratches the border of Southern Colorado and Northern New Mexico. With art imitating life, it’s no wonder that they have come to refer to their distinct style of music as “Borderland Folk.” Navigating, and oftentimes, crossing the boundaries of musical genres, Folk meets Indie, dances with Jazz, brushes up against Blues and creates a sound that is fresh and uniquely their own. Melodic conversations reveal themselves through this music; evoke the stories that hide in the gravel and grass of the roadside. Wanderlust and loss, longing and belonging, irony and epiphany rise and fall through imagery as varied and wide as the land they call home - the bitter and the sweet that are scattered along the road of life. Smooth, resonant vocals intertwine with surprising phrasing. Poetic guitar work is supported by soft-droning bass, and high-strung guitars. These are tunes that echo long past the first listen. Bittersweet Highway’s relaxed and intimate rapport with each other and their audience allows for a wonderfully interactive experience of live music that speaks to the journeys of the heart.
