Grammy-nominated musician SOPHIE dies at 34

Grammy-nominated electro-pop musician SOPHIE died on January 30 at age 34.

Her management confirmed her death in a statement published on The Guardian, saying that she died in her home in Athens at 4 am "following a sudden accident."

"At this time respect and privacy for the family is our priority. We would also ask for respect for her fanbase, and to treat the private nature of this news with sensitivity," the statement said.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, SOPHIE made her debut in 2013 with her single "Nothing More To Say." She then released severals in the run up to her 2018 debut album Oil of Every Pearl's Un-Insides. which earned her a Grammy nomination for Best Dance/Electronica Album in 2019.

As an artist, she was known for bringing avant-garde music to the mainstream, blending pop, techno, and trance together for an experimental, original sound lauded by critics and music fans. She had also produced for artists including Charlie XCX, Vince Staples, Kim Petras, Flume, and Madonna.

SOPHIE was a transgender woman, and was featured on the Pride issue of Paper Magazine in June 2018. In the interview she described transness as "taking control to bring your body more in line with your soul and spirit so the two aren't fighting against each other and struggling to survive."

"On this earth, it's that you can get closer to how you feel your true essence is without the societal pressures of having to fulfill certain traditional roles based on gender,” she said. – Rappler.com
