Autistic artist PolishAxe0 uses platform to inspire others with new single ‘Haters’
MACUNGIE, PA – Brandon Gehr has been the unfortunate victim of a lot of hate in his life. At 22 years old, this young autistic artist from Pennsylvania has had to navigate some difficult relationships during his life, and music has long been an outlet for his jumbled up emotions.
He’s letting those emotions out and pushing back against all those haters with his new single “Haters,” which is currently available across all streaming platforms. He said it’s a song that he hopes will inspire others to fight back against bullying and hate, and provide a little bit of a self-esteem boost along the way.
“No matter what somebody tells you that you can’t do, if you know in your heart that you can then you should do it,” Gehr said. “That’s why I use the name PolishAxe0. I’m Polish and the axe is the symbol of my life because it represents strength. No matter what I’ve been through, I know I’m strong and can push through it. The zero means I don’t care what anyone thinks of me. I’ll always be myself and rap about things I think will connect with other people. With that kind of mentality, I can’t be hurt. One of my lines in the song says, ‘My axe is my armor. Nobody can harm her or disarm her or charm her. The strength in my life is to keep going.’ So basically it’s a song that says nobody will ever bring me down, no matter what they say. And I hope it inspires other people to chase their dreams. If someone is feeling down, I want this song to uplift them and make them feel positive.”
PolishAxe0 said he started rapping only a few months ago, though music has been a major part of his life for as long as he can remember. He said he wants to be known as an inspirational rapper who writes songs about getting through anxiety, depression, anti-bullying, autism, and other personal issues.
“I have been through them all,” he said. “I want to reach the hearts of millions and for them to truly understand my music in the most personal way possible. I have put my heart, soul and money into music, and I will not stop until I touch a lot of people’s hearts. My biggest goal is to change people’s lives in the most positive ways.”
PolishAxe0 said “Haters” is the first of many singles to come and that he’s working on an album that should be released in early 2021. Two other singles from the album could drop before the end of the year, he said.
