Grammy-nominated producer and pop artist, Sophie, is dead.

Aged 34, the Los-Angeles-based artiste died on Saturday after she slipped and fell off while watching the full moon.

In a statement, Sophie’s management said the musician had died at around 04:00 on Saturday in the Greek capital, where she had been living.

Part of the statement reads “Sophie was a pioneer of a new sound, one of the most influential artists in the last decade,” they said.

A further statement from Sophie’s record label Transgressive, explained how the “terrible accident,” had occurred.

“True to her spirituality she had climbed up to watch the full moon and slipped and fell,” they posted online. “She will always be here with us.”

“The family thank everyone for their love and support and request privacy at this devastating time.”

Sophie was also known as a transgender icon, after affirming their identity in the 2017 video for It’s Okay To Cry.
