about

Class Picture Project is a music project from singer/songwriter Noah Hall (Easterly, Whiskey Priest) and producer/engineer Stan Keightley. It was recorded and arranged by Stan at VegetativeState in Salem, Oregon. The pair, along with Carson Hughes, brought together 32 amazing local musicians for the recordings.

The album was recorded and mixed in 12 days over 6 weeks. With few exceptions, the musicians had never heard the songs they performed on before arriving to perform. In some cases the performers improvised their own parts, others were directed by Stan or Noah. Many songs morphed drastically in the studio, most surprisingly turning many songs into duets. The result is a musical work full of energy, emotion, and many fortunate moments of creatively inspired collaboration.

Fans of Whiskey Priest and Easterly will be familiar with the strong melodies and emotive lyrical content. However, Class Picture marks the first time Noah has shared lead vocal duties. Selina Robertson and Cris Martinez are the highlights of the album. They sing in captivating conversation with Noah.

Track Name: Figure It Out
If I knew you I'd tell you the truth
And I know you could take it from me
And you'd tell me what you thought, too
And not leave you in silence and need

Oh baby, that's why it's such a sin
That you're so far away from me now
We could be somewhere in a bed
Trying to figure it out
We should be somewhere in your bed
Trying to figure it out

You can tell me whatever you like
Cause it makes no difference to me
I know what I need from you right now
I don't care if you stay or you leave

Oh baby, that's why it's such a sin
That you're so far away from me now
We could be somewhere in a bed
Trying to figure it out
We should be somewhere in your bed
Trying to figure it out
Track Name: On Your Own
Someday girl it's gonna be
The end of things for you and me
Sad to say it but it's true
Someday I'll be leaving you

And I hope you'll make it all right
On you own
Yeah, I hope you'll do ok
On your own

All my friends said you were the one
At the time I believed them
After everything I've seen
You're the best that's ever been

And I hope you'll make it all right…

someday girl it's gonna be
The end of things for you and me
Sad to say it but it's true
Someday I'll be leaving you

And I hope you'll make it all right
on your own
I hope you'll do ok
on your own
Track Name: Pure Light
I told you once, and I said it again
I wanted love, and I needed a friend
I held you up, and I made you the one
And for a time you held the glow of my son

But, I can't stand your darkness
And the black clouds up above
I can't stand your darkness
All the black clouds up above

I want someone who's happy
Anytime that I'm around
And whenever I am gone
Is happy for the time alone

I needed to find some light
And I found it in a pair of bright eyes

It's not my fault you were needy
Or that you wanted me too much
I carried you a long time
But I'm no broken lover's crutch

But, I can't stand your darkness
All the black clouds up above
I can't stand your darkness
All the black clouds up above

I needed to find some light
And I found it in a pair of bright eyes










Patience Of A Kite

How long we stay aloft
Depends on the wind
And how far we can bend

and where we will go
Is not in our sight
It can't be seen tonight

And if you're tired, worried,
Or you want some assurance
I can say it's all right
I can say it's all right

And I will hold you
With the patience of a kite
I will hold you
With the patience of a kite

You want the lightning
But you can't find the key
I'd like to say it's me

Hold on, hope slips quick
Grab your happy tight
Your little light shines brightly

And if you're tired...

Drift, and wonder if it's ok
If it's worth it, wonder

I can say it's all right...
Track Name: Swoon
You can ask your mom
She won't understand
Maybe she's too old
Maybe she's grown cold

When was the last time
She looked through the end
Of a telescope
At the craters on the moon
With the one who made her swoon?

And you can ask your sister why
She won't stand by your side
Does she have what she wants
Or did she just give up?

You want her to be happy
And she can be, too
Doing what she wants
Just like you

And you can ask me girl
I'll tell it to them all
You have a perfect heart
And I want to be a part of it

I want to see you smile
And make your dreams come true
You deserve to swoon
Baby, you deserve the moon
Track Name: Shine Again
When will I see you shine again?
When will I see you shine again?

Oh baby, please,
Turn your your smile toward me

And when will I see you shine again?

Your face stood out in a room full of strangers
And I don't wonder why
I saw your smile and my heart beat like mad
As I felt it come back to life

And when will I see you shine again?

Oh baby, please,
Turn your your smile toward me

And when will I see you shine again?

Cause you don't try
You're a beauty
And that's no lie

When will I see you shine again?
Track Name: Whale
You've got a heart as big as a whale
And you swim the sea on your own

You see the waves
And you feel the spray
But it won't take it away

You've got a heart as big as a whale
And you swim the sea on your own

You look for the light
All through the night
But it won't shine below

You've got a heart as big as a whale
And you swim the sea on your own

Maybe a net, or an old engine blade
Will be the answer to
The wishes you made

Maybe a net, or an old engine blade
Will come to answer
The wishes you made

You've got a heart as big as a whale
And you swim the sea on your own
Track Name: It Ain't Long
It ain't long for the day
It ain't long for the day
It ain't long for the day
For the day
When I'm coming home

What a sight to see
Miss Flannery and me
We'll talk about her peacocks
And man's depravity

Vince will be there, too
And he'll have a brand new ear
We'll paint a couple sunflowers
And then go grab a beer

'Cause it ain't long..

Imagine John and me
It's easy if you try
Strumming our guitars
Up with Lucy in the sky

Nick will sing a song
But not one eye will cry
Sisyphus will smile
And roll his rock right by

'Cause it ain't long...
Track Name: In the Sun
Everyone needs something
To fill their heads with and believe
Some pray for second chances
And hope in life eternally

But I limped when I came
And I'll limp when I leave
Oh, that's what I believe
I've been too long
Too long in the sun to see

Well, you think god made you
And Jesus can save you now
That hell is against you
And heaven can help you out

But you were born into sin
And it will find you again
Oh, that's what I believe
You've been too long
Too long in the sun to see

Well it makes you forget about
The place you came from
The part of you that knew

And I limped when I came
And I'll limp when I leave
That's what I believe
I've been too long
Too long in the sun to see
Track Name: Fly
You're a liar if you think the night's your friend
It doesn't cover up it just pretends
You'll never see the day again

You're a liar if you think the night's your friend
It doesn't cover up it just pretends
You'll never need the day again

Every song is a goodbye
Another lover you had to leave behind
You just keep thinking
Your kite's gonna fly
Track Name: Patience of a Kite
How long we stay aloft
Depends on the wind
And how far we can bend

and where we will go
Is not in our sight
It can't be seen tonight

And if you're tired, worried,
Or you want some assurance
I can say it's all right
I can say it's all right

And I will hold you
With the patience of a kite
I will hold you
With the patience of a kite

You want the lightning
But you can't find the key
I'd like to say it's me

Hold on, hope slips quick
Grab your happy tight
Your little light shines brightly

And if you're tired...

Drift, and wonder if it's ok
If it's worth it, wonder

I can say it's all right...
Track Name: You Weren't So Bad
I can't blame you for your love
I set my expectations higher
Than you could ever crawl

And I can't fault you for giving up
I asked you to drink deeply
From an empty cup

And when I think of
What I could have had
I guess you weren't so bad
I guess you weren't so bad

Tried to find a place to make my home
With and without you
I woke up alone

And when I look at all
That's come to pass
You are/were the greener grass

And when I think of
What I could have had
I guess you weren't so bad
I guess you weren't so bad

You can't blame me for my love
You set your expectations higher
Than I could ever crawl

And you can't blame me for giving up
You asked me to drink deeply
From an empty cup

And when I think of
What I could have had
I guess you weren't so bad
I guess you weren't so bad
Track Name: Don't Let Me Down
I, I've got high hopes
Don't let me down
Don't let me down

I, I might deserve it
Don't let me down
Don't let me down

I've had the worst
I can't be hurt
The bubble burst
And it's gone
