Twenty-five-year-old Olivia Quan died on July 1 after suffering “a brain bleed while working in bed”, Monarch Studios from Vancouver, Canada revealed late on Saturday, July 9.
An Instagram post from the studios read: “To the community of people who loved Olivia, we are now in a position to confirm the cause of her death.
“Olivia died from natural causes, a brain bleed, on the afternoon of July 1st. She was home and working in her bed at the time it happened. We take comfort in the fact that we have been told she most likely lost consciousness immediately and died without prolonged discomfort.”
It added: “I hope it helps people to know that Olivia was happy and healthy right until the end, and I’m sorry for the past days where the community had to grieve without any information around the circumstances of her passing.
“The outpouring of love for Olivia has been, no surprise, enormous, and the words you have shared publicly and privately with us have been so healing for her family and everyone on our team.
“It is a truly shocking loss to our community, and I hope everyone is finding the space to grieve and remember our most special Olivia.”

The popular recording engineer worked with several mainstream artists in Canada and her death led to hundreds of tributes flooding social media.
Musician Dan Mangan wrote: “This ain’t how it’s supposed to go. Big love.”
Kitt said: “Absolutely heartbreaking. She and her fam are in so many hearts, thoughts, and music. Forever.”
“So heartbreaking! I’m so sorry for her community of people who clearly adored her tremendously,” pop artist Madison Olds wrote.
Singer Michaela Slinger said: “I’m absolutely devastated. Olivia was one of my very first friends in the industry when I had no clue about anything. She had me over to her place at Monarch to talk shop and was such a consistent supporter for me.
“I thought she was the absolute coolest and inspired me to no end being my age and crafting a life in music for herself. The projects she’s worked on speak volumes about her talent and craft—some of the country’s best and brightest.
“Sending so much love to her family, Monarch family, and everyone in our music community trying to process this unfillable loss.”
Musician Alysha Brilla wrote: “Olivia was an inspiration to me and many others in this world. I had the gift of orbiting her in our music community and spending time with and seeing her get her flowers at the Juno’s this year was a privilege. She was always so kind, real and encouraging; the spaces she engineered in were different because of her energy and generosity.
“She provided wings for so many artists and her butterfly effect will continue on in this world through the recordings she poured her special soul into and the love of those who knew her. My heart goes out to her family, loved ones and our music community. Olivia will be dearly missed and her legacy will ripple through the universe like the beautiful soundwaves she created.”
Following her sudden death on July 1, Monarch Studios said: “The potential of this young woman and the accomplishments she had already achieved at the age of only 25 is truly remarkable.
“Attending the Juno awards this year with 3 projects nominated gives only a small hint of the great success that was in Olivia’s future.”
As noted on her website, the young recording engineer was also a producer and mixer working in Vancouver, BC.
“I’ve dedicated myself to merging analogue and digital mediums to bring music to life,” her website reads.
“I got my start in audio by interning at Monarch Studios, fell in love with the process of making records, and the rest is history.”
Among her discography, Quan worked with bands such as City and Colour, Hey Ocean! and Teller and The Tale.
The news of Ms Quan’s sudden death comes after news that an American tourist dropped dead in Italy’s Campo Sant’Angelo in Venice.
The man, 47-year-old Jesus Altamurano died suddenly at around 11.30 am on Thursday, July 7 while visiting the popular tourist destination with his family.

How vaxxed was she
The Immaculate Injections cannot be blamed….she died from ‘Working in Bed Syndrome’….WIBS – known to be a killer since 1977 obviously
And this is the right question.
Ummm….and what, pray tell, caused the brain bleed? A healthy young woman doesn’t just die of a brain bleed without something causing it.
“Olivia died from natural causes, a brain bleed”. Brain bleed is not a natural cause in a healthy person.
“The news of Ms Quan’s sudden death comes after news that an American tourist dropped dead in Italy’s Campo Sant’Angelo in Venice.

Yep, people just dropping dead, all of sudden. Keep taking your 6th and 7th booster shots.
In what universe is a brain bleed in a 25 year old considered “natural causes”???
Its very sad and unless people do the right thing and question “What caused the brain bleed & ask about the possibility of the jab causing it” we will never move forward and stop more needless death
Soult be something similar with Dr. Andreas Noack sudden cardiac arrest, just like that… R.I.P Olivia
Keep taking the shots poeple
Thank goodness she was vaxed, it could have been so much worse.
I would like to remind everyone that having a brain bleed at age 25 will never be ‘natural’.
Perhaps we should start looking at the Covid shots, with side effects such as haemorrhages.
Let’s not remain fools forever please.
one booster too many unfortunately
Spontaneous brain bleeds in healthy people, aggressive cancers like Terry Bradshaw, burst Aortas due to “ulceration”, spontaneous splenic ruptures with no trauma or injury, 1700% increase in cardiac arrest of healthy athletes ( who should have the healthiest hearts ever), babies that have myocarditis in utero, spontaneous miscarriage weeks after the covid shot. But lets reduce the risk of a cold/flu. Do your part, says the media, who is owned by the drug companies.
