Rita Wilson is fresh off her show-stopping appearance at the opening of the Primetime Emmy Awards. The dynamic artist continues to demonstrate her evolution as an excellent singer-songwriter and performer who successfully straddles the worlds of pop, country, and folk. Not too long ago, she released the third and final EP in her heartfelt Trilogy series, entitled, “Trilogy III.”
Rita Wilson & Sleeping At Last – “Thin Air”
The project features three meticulously crafted new tracks by Rita Wilson along with an impressive and talented team of songwriters and producers. The lead single, “Thin Air,” is a sparsely beautiful and ethereal collaboration with Sleeping At Last, who boasts over six million monthly listeners on Spotify. ‘Thin Air’ was co-written and co-produced by Rita and Sleeping At Last’s Ryan O’Neal.

Rita Wilson – “You Are My Heart”

“People are multifaceted. We are not just one thing. And we often do multiple things at once; a metaphorical and creative juggling act. I started thinking about triptychs and how each panel shows one aspect of a painting. In actual triptychs, the panels can be folded so that only part of the art is seen. That’s often how I feel. I’m showing one side of myself or maybe two but the complete picture is hidden. That led me to the idea of a trilogy; a series of three related works. These songs are a part of me that I don’t often show but they’re a part of who I am. My three new EPs called Trilogy 1, 2, and 3 are different aspects of the music I love to write, the stories I love to tell. Three EPS, three songs each.” – Rita Wilson explained the inspiration for her Trilogy series
