Scottish pop and electro musician, singer and producer Sophie died at the age of 34 in a “terrible accident”, her label Transgender said in a statement on Saturday.
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Sophie worked with artists such as Madonna and Charlie Kasasq for their debut album in the category Best Dance / Electro Album in 2019, and was nominated for a Grammy Award for “Every Pearl Oil inside the United Nations “, which received widespread critical acclaim.
“Our beautiful Sophie tragically passed away this morning after a terrible accident,” said the statement from the British music label Transgressive.
A “visionary” for Christine and The Queens
“True to her spirituality, she climbed up to see the full moon, accidentally slipped and fell,” the text continued on Twitter. The musician, singer, producer and DJ, Sophie Axon, better known as Sophie, released her debut single, “Nothing More Two,” in 2013.
The transgender artist, Sophie, spoke of her transgenderness in 2018 in an interview with the American magazine Paper. “To me, being transgender is under control, so that your body can be more plentiful with your soul and soul, so that the two don’t clash together and don’t struggle to survive,” she said.
Sophie had collaborated with Madonna – on whose song she wrote “Bitch I’m Madonna” – and Charlie XCX on the singles of “Wroom Woman” and Charlie “Afterparty”.
French singer Christine and The Queens paid tribute on Twitter, calling them “visionaries”. “She, as an artist and a woman, rebelled against the narrow, society being a complete conquest,” he said. “Groom the pioneers”.
