Swiss Singer-Songwriter, Mo Klé Releases Debut EP & Reflective Song about Death

“I wrote the song after I had to attend two funerals (one of my grandpa and another one of an old neighbour). Both funerals were pretty grim and dark. It made me reflect on how I would want to go when I have to.”

Mo Klé is out with a beautiful finger picking folk song about death. The song is called “If I Die” and is the 3rd track from Mo Klé’s recently released EP “Fighter In The Sky” that debuted on January 25th, 2019. The acoustic ballad features breathtaking guitar parts that will make listeners stop what they are doing and listen to the meaningful lyrics. The talented Swiss songwriter delivers his vocals with fortitude and raw emotion. “If I Die” is packed with meaning and authenticity. The lyrics speak about how he wants to leave the Earth, not by means, but how he wants to be remembered and how he wants to feel by the end of his life. Even though the song is about death, the song is quite positive in meaning and really dives into the purpose of life and what is truly important. The songwriting style could be fitting on the same radio station as Dave Van Ronk, Bob Dylan, Tallest Man on Earth,  Field Medic, and Bright Eyes. If you love meaningful acoustic music you will love Mo Klé.

You are probably wondering what inspired Klé to write “If I Die” so we spoke with him to get an answer:

“I wrote the song after I had to attend two funerals (one of my grandpa and another one of an old neighbour). Both funerals were pretty grim and dark. It made me reflect on how I would want to go when I have to. I thought “let me die in summer, let me lie on flowered fields”. I would want it to be a more cheerful event where no one wears black and no priests give dull speeches.”
– Mo Klé

Mo Klé is based in Switzerland and can be found late in the evening writing songs with a pen and guitar on his knees.
