If I fall into a hole, I know you will "Cover Me"


It was a great way for us to end 2012 and start 2013 because my son, Nick Davis launched his second single “Cover Me” at 12 midnight 31st December 2012.



On "Cover Me", Nick collaborated with another local performer under the name of, Róisín. "Cover Me" is a song about unconditional love and friendship.

"2012 has seen many ups and down for me. Lost In Time was written during a down time but I am glad the year ended with "Cover Me" which is a song written and produced during a happy time. It has been a great way to end the year and to start a new one with a bang. All these songs that I've written or am currently writing as a solo project, are deeply personal to me. It is from there deep inside me that my music resides. Giving them shape with music and lyrics is like keeping my personal diary. Songs like Cover Me and Lost In Time undoubtedly are realized within a very different side of me compared to performing as the front man of the alternative rock band, "Rosevelt", but I am loving it and I am very comfortable with it. 2013 will be an exciting year for me, and I am sure there will be more songs, more music. If I can point the way for my listeners to that part of them where their own songs are, I will realize my own dreams." - Nick Davis



Have you listen to his first single “Lost in Time” yet? If not, you may listen to it here.
If you like the song and would like to own the track, please purchase it from either iTune or CDbaby for US$0.99 only. Your support will be greatly appreciated.

As a mum, I am always very happy to see my son achieving another of his goals and hear that he is happy. He has been so busy with his 2nd single that we have not seen him since Christmas day. I can’t wait for him to come home to have a simple meal with us. I will make my mushroom spinach quiche.

Mushroom spinach quiche
Largely adapted from food.com with modification


Ingredients:
1 (9 inch) pie shells
76 gm butter
3/4 cup mushroom (sliced)
1 cup spinach (blanched and chopped)
1 cup milk
2 large eggs

(A)
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
¼ tsp chopped fresh thyme
¼ tsp chopped fresh rosemary
¼ tsp ground black pepper
¼ tsp sea salt

Method:
Preheat oven to 325°F. Saute mushrooms and spinach in butter. Beat together milk and eggs and then add (A). Combine the two mixtures and pour into pie shell. Bake for 35 minutes.

To make the pie crust, I use the recipe I learned from Joy of Baking (with a little extra care to keeping things cool in our equatorial weather).

  2. Congrats on your son's album! You must be a proud mom & I can imagine the joy. I'm sure he'll fall in love with your Quiche. Shy to say, but I always get mine from Delifrance since I don't bake. The only food that motivates me to bake is Pineapple Tarts & I'm really looking fwd to making it for CNY. It's been a while since we last exchanged words; hope all's well & all the best to 2013. xoxo, Shirley

  13. Happy New Year, Happy New Year! We only came back yesterday! So sorry that we turned up so late on the gathering! Isabelle was sick & had to take her to see doctor, then our GPS wasn't leading us to Sonia's house! Thanks for your lovely gifts! I have to tell you that you are one pretty mummy, haha! That day, we stayed until after dinner & I even took Isabelle to have shower at Sonia's house & both of my children fell asleep in the car, on the way back to the hotel! Congratulations to Nick for his latest single! I'm going to check out the song later! Your vegetarian quiche looks tasty like usual!
