Transgender Rights Activist, Artist and Producer SOPHIE Dies at 34

Due to a “terrible accident.”

Grammy-nominated pop artist and producer Sophie Xeon, professionally known as SOPHIE, has died due to a “terrible accident” at the age of 34. According to CNNshe was found dead at home in Athens, Greece on January 30.

“Tragically our beautiful Sophie passed away this morning after a terrible accident. True to her spirituality she had climbed up to watch the full moon and accidentally slipped and fell,” Transgressive Records said in a statement. “She will always be here with us. The family thanks everyone for their love and support and request privacy at this devastating time.”

The Glasgow-born transgender rights activist previously had the honor of working with Madonna in 2015 to co-produce her single “Bitch, I’m Madonna.” The following year, SOPHIE teamed up with Charli XCX on her EP Vroom Vroom. By 2018, her debut album Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides was nominated for a Grammy under the Best Dance/Electronic Album category. “SOPHIE was a pioneer of a new sound, one of the most influential artists in the last decade,” her publicist shared. “Not only for ingenious production and creativity but also for the message and visibility that was achieved. An icon of liberation,” they added.

Our deepest condolences are with everyone affected by the death.
