Grammy-nominated Artist | Trans-Rights Icon
Experimental pop artist and producer Sophie Xeon, known to the world as SOPHIE, died in a “terrible accident” at age 34, according to a statement from the musician’s record label Transgressive.
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Sophie developed a taste in music early in her young life, thanks to her father who would make her listen to cassettes of electronic music in their car.
She broke into the music scene first in her adulthood when she started producing and working with a band called Motherland
Her 2018’s album titled ‘Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides’ earned her a nomination for a Grammy for best dance/ electronic album.
The nomination was extra special as Sophie also made history as she went on to be one of the first openly transgender artists to be nominated for the category
