Lilah Obregon-Wilson

Music Supervisor


Lilah Obregon-Wilson is a 1st generation Mexican-American immigrant born and raised in LA but then rooted herself in NY after getting a full ride softball scholarship to St. John’s Uni. With deep cultural roots in Chicano soul and a youth spent in the party crew/DJ scene, that merged out of East LA, it all made sense that Lilah immersed herself into the realm of music when deciding to open open her bar/coffeehouse/venue, The Lucky Cat, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2003 as part of the growing DIY scene in NYC. 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 housed in the legendary Power Station (then Avatar) 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 all music-related projects going through the agency — including: creative development, budgeting, clearance and production on major campaigns, audio branding 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 mainly fashion clients to include: Michael Kors, Coach, Sephora, Estée Lauder, Vogue, and Bobbi Brown.

IN 2011 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, theater and TV/Webseries/VR 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.
