Rikki Jo Hickey promotes Marika Straw's Nov. 2023 show at the Range Rider on her arts beat: "Up in Enterprise, at 7 pm, the Range Rider Bar and Grill brings you a night of music that you will not want to miss. Marika Straw is a local Wallowa County born and raised resident with a passion for justice and support in the LGBTQ+ community. Their music is full of movement, pauses, emotion, and depth that bring stories of a wild and gentle heart to light, making for an entrancing storytelling night. Marika's voice will captivate you like a siren, and energize your soul in a vibrant bath of rich tonality, with a timbre that will lull you into a reverie."
