Randy here, also known as the Covert Dragon. My passion for music is beyond words and on top of that, I love fun. While my heart belongs to the Muse, my whimsical style comes from many years of entertainment. Dragons' Breath, those magical mystical wisps of ethereal energy, issue forth from our music with enriching displays of tonal harmonics that once existed deep in the crystal caverns of my mind. Joy and playfulness revel in the earth-friendly eco-satisfying songs presented as only a soaring dragon can actualize. Let us be at peace, full of compassion and wisdom with all our brothers, sisters, and relations. May the Grandmother and Grandfather be always with you. 

Randy Widick (the Covert Dragon) is an accomplished singer-songwriter. His music has been performed in the UK, Japan, China, Philippines, and here at home throughout the US. As a Senior musician, song-write, and poet; you can hear experience and magical lore in his whimsical ‘Book of Song’. His poetic melodies intertwine musical harmonics, weaving key patterns, and human behavioral modes together to produce an almost sacred sense of awareness. According to Randy, “You don’t have to understand it to enjoy it. When you let it get inside your heart, experience it in the moment, the Muse will carry you along.”
