Singer Cady Groves has died aged 30, her family has sadly confirmed.
The 30-year-old singer-songwriter died of natural causes on Sunday after battling health problems earlier this year.
Cady was best known for her 2012 single 'This Little Girl', as well as her most recent single, 'Oil and Water', released in 2017.
Cady's brother Cody revealed the news on social media, tweeting: "[Cady Groves] has left this world.
"Details are limited right now but family is trying to get them and will keep people updated. Rest In Peace little sis. Hope you're reunited with @kellydgroves and Casey."
The emotional post reffered to Cady's late brothers, Casey and Kelly, who died in 2007 and 2014, respectively.
Cody later posted: "I hate that I even have to do this, but apparently the world and internet is a cluster of twisted misinformation.
"In my original post I had stated we had no information to try and prevent that, but to expel rumours I will provide an update.
"The medical examiner has completed autopsy and there was no indication of foul play or self harm. Simply put, Cady Groves died of natural causes.
"She had some medical problems last fall and our best guess at this point until further testing is complete is that they had resurfaced.
"Please respect her name and family before sharing information that did not come directly from here."

AND NOW....A SHORT FILM 🎥🎥 ON WHAT QUARANTINE DAY NUMBER 967 HAS BEEN LIKE FOR ME. (Swipe in order) 👈🏻👈🏻👈🏻 Slide #1: HEY GUYS! It’s been a hot minute since we talked. And although I’m pretty sure I’m going batshit crazy in my house for week 7...I figured I’d update you on what I’ve been up to! Slide #2: wait a sec gimme a kiss y’all buttheads I miss you. No frenchers though I’m a lady. Slide 3: I listened to the entire Britney Spears baby one more time album album before my 7th morning snack. Slide #4: then I sat around and stared out the window at the rain while waiting until it was socially acceptable to eat another snack. Slide #5: now I’m reading a book in my living room. That I’ve already read twice. So AS YALL CAN SEE...I’m not running out of things to do..just mostly running out of cheese to eat. And books to read. And basically...yeah I’m running out of things to do help me I love you I’m just having a lot of feelings ok bye. Let me know what y’all have been up to and tag me with your short film! 🌈🎥
Cody added his sister "was really looking forward to the next few months and release of her album".
He added: "Our latest in depth conversation (since most were witty banter) was her sending me songs to critique and give feedback on."
Foul play and self-harm have both been ruled out by the coroner, according to a press report from Vel Records.
A press statement read: "As her admirers mourn her loss online, Cady’s family requests fans refrain from speculation. Cady was excited about her new recordings and getting out on the road to support them.
"It is hoped the EP she was slated to release this summer will be available soon. Cady’s family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in her name to the Music Health Alliance or MusiCares."
