Vanessa Carlton is a singer and songwriter who first gained fame in the early 2000s. She is best known for her singles “A Thousand Miles” and “Ordinary Day.”
Carlton released her fourth album, “Liberman,” in 2015. The album features the single “San Francisco,” which was inspired by the city of San Francisco, California.
“This is a song about heartbreak and moving on,” Carlton has explained of the track. “It’s also about San Francisco and how whenever I’m there I feel like I can be who I really am.”
She added: “I’ve always felt that way about this city. There’s something about the fog and the way it covers the hills that I’ve always felt was an analogy for heartbreak… And then there’s also hope. There is light in the fog. That’s why San Francisco calls to me.”
