A visionary artist who altered the very fabric of pop and electronic music, SOPHIE's influence on electronic music culture can not be understated.

"Crossing boundaries of pop music and chasing transcendence, Sophie achieves the rare feat of making abstract, hard electronic music that hits you straight in the heart", wrote the NME in a four-star review. She rebelled against the narrow, normative society by being an absolute triumph, both as an artist and as a woman. Her 2018 debut album, the pop-trance Oil of Every Pearl's Un-Insides, was nominated for a Grammy for best dance/electronic album. She went on to say, "It means you're not a mother or a father - you're an individual who's looking at the world and feeling the world". We need to honor and respect her memory and legacy. "Thinking of Sophie's family and friends at this hard time".

SOPHIE was transgender and discussed gender identity while speaking to Paper magazine in 2018.

"I'm sorry this is messy I deleted this three times I feel like it's hard to handle the information correctly".
