BREAKING: Grammy-Nominated Scottish Musician, Sophie Xeon Dies At 34 After ‘Sudden Accident’

Scottish electronic pop musician and producer, Sophie Xeon has died at 34 after a “sudden accident”, the artist’s record label said in a statement on Saturday.

The Glasgow-born producer was nominated for a Grammy for her debut studio album in 2019 and collaborated with Madonna and the British singer Charli XCX.

The UK-based music label Transgressive said;

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.

True to her spirituality she had climbed up to watch the full moon and accidentally slipped and fell.

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 went on to cite her professional accolades adding;

SOPHIE was a pioneer of a new sound, one of the most influential artists in the last decade. Not only for ingenious production and creativity but also for the message and visibility that was achieved. An icon of liberation.

The producer released her debut single, Nothing More to Say in 2013. Her debut Album Oil of Every Pearly’s Un-Insides, released in 2018, was met with widespread critical success and nominated for a Grammy for best dance/electronic album.

The transgender artist spoke about her gender identity in a 2018 interview with US magazine, Paper.

She said;

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.
