Honestly, east coast duo Eric Canto and Dalton Winters, released their third single of 2020, “San Francisco”. The track conveys the nostalgia and longing for happier times in a past relationship, when everything was hopeful and full of loving promise.
The origins of the song were inspired by the relationship and various events that transpired between Winters and his ex. After paining over memories of a vacation that Winters and his then-girlfriend had taken under happier and sweeter circumstances, “San Francisco” was first conceptualized in Honestly’s home studio.
“San Francisco” was the very first song that inspired the band to pursue Honestly as more than a bedroom-therapy-writing session. The song materialized very quickly from initial inspiration, and was the first time that the band excitedly and proudly shared the project with their friends. To Canto and Winters, “San Francisco” was the genesis of taking Honestly from a mere bedroom project and hobby to a band that they are now debuting to the world.
