Jayadev’s Mantra Crew – Ganesh
Sobel Nation Records welcomed John Richardson who is the founder and drummer from the ’70s pop group The Rubettes who had several top ten hits including the No. 1 hit “Sugar Baby Love.”
John is still performing with the group John Richardson, Mick Clarke, and Steve Etherington of the Rubettes and continues to release original chart-topping songs.
John also continues to write and record music under his spiritual name Jayadev.
When John asked his soon to be 13 years old granddaughter Shyama recently what gift she would like for her birthday as she becomes a teenager, she replied that she would like him to write her a song and make a recording of her singing it. John has been a Hare Krishna devotee for 35 years so taking inspiration from his connections with India he wrote a song entitled “Ganesh.” Ganesh in the Hindu faith is the demigod in charge of removing obstacles. Shyama is also featured on the song.
