Scottish musician Sophie Xeon, known as SOPHIE, has died aged 34 following a “sudden accident”.
A representative for the Grammy-nominated singer said in a statement: “It is with profound sadness that I have to inform you that musician and producer SOPHIE passed away this morning around 4am in Athens, where the artist had been living, following a sudden accident.
“At this time respect and privacy for the family is our priority. We would also ask for respect for her fan base, and to treat the private nature of this news with sensitivity.”
A Glasgow-born Tran’s rights activist, SOPHIE worked with Madonna in 2015 to co-produce the single “Bitch, I’m Madonna” and collaborated with Charli XCX on the EP Vroom Vroom.
SOPHIE’s debut 2018 debut album “Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides” earned the musician a Grammy nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album.
In an interview with online magazine Paper in June 2018, Sophie discussed what really Trans meant to her. “For me, transness is 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,” she said.
One transgender fan tweeted: ‘As a trans woman, Sophie’s music and message of empowerment means so much to me- more than I could ever put to words.
