Lilah Obregon-Wilson – Music Supervisor
Lilah is a 1st generation Mexican-American immigrant born and raised in LA but then rooted herself in NY after getting a softball scholarship to St. John’s University. 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 in NYC and then on to J. Walter Thompson, where she was made head of the Music and Radio Department (2009). Wilson was the key point person for anything music-related 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 clients to include: Baron and Baron, Michael Kors, Coach, Sephora, Estée Lauder and Vogue.
Intrigued with motion pictures, television and overall media production, 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, theatre and TV/Webseries projects, including: 2017’s Berlinale’s 2nd place Audience Award winning music documentary, “Chavela.” More recently she added VR film to her credits, with Annie nominated, virtual reality film, “BattleScar,” which premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival at their new permanent VR theater, The Ray and premiered in full form in December of 2020.
In addition to extensive film work, Lilah has moved into production itself. This has included casting and recording for commercials and motion pictures, art direction, events and installations, including the installation, art direction and launch of Mexican artist, Gilberto Navarro Aceves’, “Bicycles,” a six month art installation of 122 sculptures that were installed in 11 locations in NYC. In addition, she has served as producer, art director and music supervisor on the “Bros” web series.
Lilah is a member the Guild of Music Supervisors and also acting board member of the Golden Hornet Organization.
