Family relatives have confirmed the passing of singer-songwriter Q Lazzarus at the age of 59.

The New Jersey native gained fame for her 1988 song Goodbye Horses, which was used in the popular film Silence of the Lambs.

According to an internet obituary, Q Lazzarus, actual name Diane Luckey, passed away on July 19.

Her reason of demise is still unknown.

The singer’s friend and director Eva Aridjis said this to Rolling Stone: “Over the past three years, Q became one of my closest friends, and we were in contact virtually everyday.

Because it was so vivacious, bright, and enthusiastic, “Q had one of those life powers that you just can’t picture being extinguished or ceasing to exist.”

Aridjis described herself as “heartbroken” by her friend’s passing.

Lazzarus was described as a “multi-talented instrumentalist” by family members.

They said: “She had a beautiful sense of humour, loved to tell jokes and stories, and had a wonderful and distinctive clothing sense that was all her own.

She was a larger-than-life legend in the music industry who always made a statement and attracted attention everywhere she went.

Online tributes to the singer have also flooded in.

“Rest in Peace Q Lazzarus, so undervalued, whose songs will haunt us for eternity,” one fan wrote.

Additionally, someone else wrote: “RIP Q Lazzarus, gone too soon. #goodbyehorses.”

Dark Entries Records’ Instagram post reads: “Farewell, horses, and RIP, Q Lazzarus. You have me in tears. Your music altered my life irrevocably and served as the inspiration for the creation of Dark Entries.”

Candle Goes Away, a song from the 1986 film Something Wild starring Jonathan Demme, was performed by Lazzarus.

Following its appearance in the Buffalo Bill scene of Silence of the Lambs, Goodbye Horses became a cult favourite.

Before she passed away, Lazzarus reportedly started filming a documentary on her musical career. Aridjis told Rolling Stone that it would air in 2023.
