"Painting Portraits" by Hataałii

Psychic Sink is proud to present "Painting Portraits" by Hataałii.

Hataałiinez Wheeler is a 17 year old multi-instrumentalist musician from the Navajo Nation who grew up in Window Rock, AZ. He began playing bass at the age of 14 and then switched to guitar. Some of his first musical explorations were learning a few surf songs by The Ventures.

During his freshman year in high school, he formed his first band called The Remnants. After a few years, he realized he had enough recordings to release an album, so he released his debut album "Banana Boy" in 2019.

A year later, as COVID-19 transformed the world and motion halted, Hataałii found himself at home. He began writing what would become the full length album "Painting Portraits". He recorded and produced "Painting Portraits" in a shed down by his family's small corn field. Some days, the shed thermometer would read 90 degrees and Hataałii's father would advise him to take a break from recording.

"Painting Portraits" is an impressive album that was written, performed, produced and recorded by 17 year old Hataałiinez Wheeler. Psychic Sink is beyond excited to help get this rare time capsule pressed!
