Kayla Marque introduced us to her blend of folk, soul and hip-hop in late 2015 with a session in the CPR Performance Studio. Since then the Denver singer-songwriter has released her debut album, "Live & Die Like This." She also formed a backing band and played some notable Colorado shows, including this year's Westword Music Showcase.
