The Iron Bear

Eva Westphal writes purpose-driven pop. Transparent about her coming out journey, sobriety, and mental health recovery, she encourages listeners to join her musical world of vulnerability and resilience. Each song tells a story -- from the inner child healing of recent releases “Adult” and “Belong” to the queer anthems “Loud,” “Understood,” and “Proud of Me.” As a result, she has amassed 5M+ streams across DSPs and a dedicated following across platforms like TikTok and Instagram.

She is humbled by the support she has received throughout her career -- from being featured in the 2023 Converse Pride Campaign, to a sold out headliner at The Mercury Lounge and being awarded the Music Forward/CITI 2023 LGBTQ+ Emerging Artist Award. However, the highlights she most cherishes are the countless smaller, gratitude-filled moments she shares with fans. Eva says, “every time a fan comes up to me after a show and tells me I’ve helped them on their own journey, it reminds me why I do what I do.” Motivated to spread self-love, and with a passionate fanbase by her side, Eva has cemented herself as a rising artist to watch in 2024.
