The loss of the prolific artist has been felt across the music community, and her influence lives on in the sounds of her collaborators.
After the crushing loss of electronic music icon SOPHIE last month, artists from all ends of the music community united together to mourn collectively and share their favorite moments with the late artist. Her far-reaching influence can be attributed to her unique manipulation of sonics and her persistent sense of self, inspiring young creators—especially those holding LGBTQ+ identities—to feel comfortable in their own skin and pursue their dreams.
SOPHIE’s work received large-scale recognition in 2018, when her debut album, Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides, earned a Grammy nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album. At the same time, she was also a prolific producer, assisting a plethora of iconic names in the studio over the years.
