Biography

Smooth Addiction…

…is a modern fusion of musical genres (including Rock, Blues, Jazz, Latin, and Funk) with dynamic lyrics ranging from hauntingly soulful to energetic and empowering. At the core of the music is the band’s songwriting team – Judy D & Josh C – who meld years of artistic prowess and life experiences to create some of the Lehigh Valley’s best and most stirring original tracks. Having been compared to the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Joss Stone, Santana, and others, Smooth Addiction has forged their own unique sound that at once pays tribute to their musical influences while blazing new creative territory of their own with trademark traits such as complex & inventive melodies and chord structures, frequent tempo changes, and driving rhythm and guitar work.

Since the bands songwriting duo start in early 2009, their subsequent four piece band formation a few months later, and continuing thru their frequent local gigs over the past year, SA has showcased their extensive collective talent to an ever-growing local following playing regular venues that include Starfish Brassiere, Machs Gute, and The Comfort Suites Inn.

Judy Danilovicz, the bands incomparable Lead Vocalist/Lyricist and a performer since birth, has a storied history singing Christian music all of her adult life as both a soloist and one part of the Harris Women Trio. In addition, her love of performing arts keeps her involved in local high school theater as director at Bethlehem’s LHS, with her productions earning multiple nominations and Freddy Awards over the past 5+ years. With her extensive training, theater experience, and strong sultry voice, Judy understands music performance is about emotion - it is drama! Josh Colon, Lead Guitarist and Musical Composer, blends his many years of live and recording experience with his unique view of life and sense of humor to help create the one-of-a-kind SA sound. He has played in many Latin bands throughout his professional career and has been a fill-in bass player for local bands such as Post Junction and Family Circus, just to name a few. Bill Adamson (Delaware Valley Symphonic Band, Bluestone, Black Cat Bone) and Jason Huber (Buffalo Hollow, King Pickle, Red Buoy) round out the band playing Drums and Bass Guitar respectively.

Having cut their first CD at the end of 2009, which included 7 original tracks and 3 popular covers, the bands songwriting has continued to flow and SA now plans to release a second CD comprised entirely of original songs during the first half of 2010.

SA is available as a Duo (Singer/Songwriter) or a 4-5 piece band; whatever is appropriate for a particular gig.

Lyrics

Show Me The Road

Written By: Judy Danilovicz

Lyrics Judy Danilovicz
Music Josh Colon

Crazy but sometimes
I think I’ve got this wrong
I don’t see blue skys
After the dawn

People keep movin’
No one’s here to stay
They’re searchin’ for somethin’
Lost along the way
(Searchin’ for somethin’
Lost along the way)

Chorus:

Time doesn’t always
Heal a broken heart
Who’s gonna’ be there
To shield you from the dark

One thing is certain,
No matter where you go
I’ll be here waitin’
Show me the Road
(I’ll be here waitin’
Show me the road)

Everything’s changin’
I need to jump on board
How can I do this?
I’ve got to know for sure

Blue skies are comin’
Cause that’s what I’ve been told
So I’ll be here waitin’
Show me the road
(I’ll be here waitin’
Show me the road)

Chorus:

Time doesn’t always heal a broken heart
Who's gonna' be there to shield you from the dark
*One thing is certain, No matter where you go
I'll be here waitin', show me the road *(repeat 1x)

Breathe With Me

Lyrics Judy D.
Music Josh Colon

Hidin' in the shadows
Darkness creepin' in
You never said a word
Never let us in

But you had all the glory
And everyone you knew
They wanted to get closer
Closer still to you...

Chorus:

Goin' back in time
Changin' all we know
Rerun of your life
Just can't make it so

Breathe with me
Weep with me
Take one more step near me

Breathe with me
Weep with me
Just one last time NEAR ME

Wanted to be different
But life is so sublime
I have to say good-bye now
Runnin' out of time

But you had all the glory
Well and everyone you knew
They NEEDED to get closer
Closer still to you...

Chorus:

Goin' back in time
Changin' all we know
Rerun of your life
Just can't make it so

Breathe with me
Weep with me
Take one more step near me

Breathe with me
Weep with me
Just one last time NEAR ME...ayyyyy, ayyyyy.

I have to say good-bye now...Runnin' out of time

Just Once

Written By: Judy Danilovicz/Joshua Colon

Just once I wish you could step inside my shoes
Just once, stop playin' me for a fool
Just once, give it all you've got
Just once, don't blame me for takin' a shot

(Chorus)
Said you would be there
But now you're messin' round with another
Left with the memories
And I'm never, never, gonna' recover

Cause I'm lost then I'm found
Lift me up, shove me down
Til' I drown, you've got me spinnin' round
(Round, got me spinnin' round, got me spinnin' round)

Just once I believed every lie you spoke to me
Just once I pictured the man you'll never be
Just once, as I'm standin' in your door
Just once, don't wanna' see your face no more

(Chorus)

(Chorus)
Said you would be there
But now you're messin' round with another
Left with the memories
And I'm never, never, gonna' recover

Cause I'm lost then I'm found
Lift me up, shove me down
Til' I drown, you've got me spinnin' round
(Round, got me spinnin' round, got me spinnin' round)
*2nd time through add Got my feet back on the ground
had me spinnin' round, got me spinnin' around and around...

(Guitar Solo)
Cause I'm lost then I'm found
Lift me up shove me down, til' I drown
You've got me spinnin'....round..............
