Lilah Obregon-Wilson

Music Supervisor


Lilah Obregon-Wilson, found her love of music within the Chicano soul and Cha Cha dance crew and D.J. scene that merged out of East LA, in the mid ‘90s.

After school, she immersed herself into a larger realm of music when she opened her bar/coffeehouse/venue, The Lucky Cat, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2003. The establishment featured regular live events including performances from artists such as: Sharon Jones, The Budos Band, Lee Fields and the Expressions, Naomi Shelton, Vic Thrill, Reggie Watts, a nascent TV on The Radio, Very Be Careful, King Missile III, as well as a top selection of renowned underground DJs from NYC, Latin America and Europe.

Post-Lucky Cat, Lilah brought her music relationships and legal expertise (JD, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law ’01) into the world of advertising first; as a Music Producer/Supervisor at a music house in NYC and then on to J. Walter Thompson, where she was made head of the Music and Radio Department (2009). She was the key point person for anything music-related going through the agency — including: creative development, budgeting, clearance and production on major campaigns and new business pitches. Her JWT clients included: Microsoft Bing, Rolex, Smirnoff, Macy’s and Royal Caribbean among many others. She then moved on to freelance, developing a roster of clients to include: Michael Kors, Coach, Sephora, Estée Lauder, Vogue, Bobbi Brown and Baron and Baron.

Intrigued with motion pictures, television and overall media production, Lilah kicked off her film career with We Are Young and Sundance’s Audience Award winner, Sleepwalk with Me. She has since worked on numerous films, theatre and TV/Webseries projects, including: 2017’s Berlinale’s 2nd place Audience Award choice and Cine Arte’s #1 documentary of the decade, Chavela and Annie nominated, virtual reality film, BattleScar, which premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival at their new permanent VR theater, The Ray.
