Biography
This is single for the new album coming in January 2021 called Level Best - Happy Together.

If you have been around bluegrass much, you might recognize a few of the smiling faces that make up Level Best Band or the names of some of the fine bands they have been in over the years. This is a group of veterans that knows how to please an audience.

​With exciting solo work on fiddle, dobro, mandolin, and banjo, Level Best has that soulful polish, earned with years of playing bluegrass and country music.

​But you will often hear it said in bluegrass, it's all about the singing. And that goes double for Level Best, or, more accurately, quadruple. Because four members of the band love to sing, and all are at home singing lead or harmony. That makes a dozen different trio combinations, and a unique range of vocal colors in one band.

Wally sings lead on "Just When I needed You Most" and switches to dobro for the kickoff and backup. Terry sings baritone, and Lisa does the tenor.

Instruments:
James Field: Guitar
Wally Hughes: Dobro
Terry Wittenberg: Banjo
Lisa Kay Howard: Mandolin
Joe Hannabach: Bass

Lyrics

Just When I Needed You Most
Writer: Randy VanWarmer and Timothy E. Greene

You packed in the morning, I stared out the window
And I struggled for something to say
You left in the rain without closing the door
I didn't stand in your way

But I miss you more than I missed you before
And now where I'll find comfort, god knows
'Cause you left me just when I needed you most


Now most every morning, I stare out the window
And I think about where you might be
I've written you letters that I'd like to send
If you would just send one to me

'Cause I need you more than I needed before
And now where I'll find comfort, God knows
'Cause you left me just when I needed you most


You Left me just when I needed you most
You packed in the morning, I stared out the window
And I struggled for something to say
You left in the rain without closing the door
I didn't stand in your way

Now I love you more than I loved you before
And now where I'll find comfort, God knows
'Cause you left me just when I needed you most
Oh yeah, you left me just when I needed you most
You left me just when I needed you most
