Tony Vani and Debbie Hoskin of the"The Stir", a high energy rock, R&B band with powerful rhythm section, have created the NEW RELEASE CD "SOUL RETRIEVAL" a spiritually moving compilation of rock songs with proceeds from the sale of the CD going to cancer research. Band members of the "Stir" include Duncan Cooper on Keyboards, Vitas Slapkauscaus on bass guitar and Chris Lingard on drums. We want to gratefully thank the members of our band, "The Stir" for supporting and helping to create the "Soul Retrieval" album.

Our CD, "Soul Retrieval" is an expression of the Heart. When we decided to create this album, there was no contemplation of how the CD would be received by the world, only a genuine desire to express and share what is deep within. Now that it is complete, we hope that it resonates within your hearts. "Soul Retrieval" has been created with the intent to honor beloved family members Jason Hoskin and Roger Sabo.

Tony Vani, hailing from Belleville, Ontario, known for his soulful bluesy vocals and skillful harmonica playing. Tony is a charismatic and high energy performer, touring Canada for the past 2 decades in both blues and pop/rock bands.

Debbie Hoskin, singer/songwriter, born and raised in New York City; Debbie had several songs on the Canadian top 40 charts in the late 80's; Debbie has a unique vocal style of her own described as sometimes sweet, sometimes sultry, always soulful.

Joining forces, the creative chemistry of Tony and Debbie has resulted in a powerful and moving musical experience that will move your soul and grip your heart.

Thankyou for dropping by my page. I am well, going to take early retirement from work and plan to do experimenting with music making. Fred who produced DirgeK's music has been very ill with throat cancer but I hope he is going to make it through.
Hope your music making is going well and you are continuing to heal, I know it is not easy.

Love to you and all your family

I am not at liberty to say where I have been.............contractual obligations and all that!!!

All I can tell you is that two large barrels of Peruvian guano, one knitted glove (orange in colour), a handmaid with a distinct aroma and some sheep's testicles were involved!!!

Dear Deb,

Happy New Year! Wow, what is happiness? I measure life one minute at a time. I'm thankful for all the good minutes and I've learned that having the strength to live through
something gives you the strength to live with it. I hope that your minutes are good ones
and that in 2010 you will have 525,600 of them.

Luv
Rich
