Kobalt Chief Creative Officer, Sas Metcalfe, also noted, “Jill is a welcome addition to our Global team and we are so pleased she has chosen to join Kobalt.”
Jill Tschogl began her career at Universal Music Publishing where she was mentored by Motown Records President Ethiopia Habtemariam. For 13 years, Jill managed a roster of more than 80 writers, including J.Cole, Miguel, Ester Dean, Cardo Got Wings, Hit-Boy, and Happy Perez among others. Following UMPG, Jill headed up the Music and Content team at WAV, a livestream platform and artist discovery app. There she liaised with partners like The Fader and Complex, while launching activations and content with music veterans such as Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Quavo (The Migos), and YG, as well as upcoming artists like Megan Thee Stallion, Shoreline Mafia and SOBxRBE. For the past four years, Jill has also helmed her own creative consulting and management company, which merges her lifelong love of Rap and R&B with her passion for fashion and style. At Full Set Creative, the San Diego native fostered recording artists, songwriters, producers, wardrobe stylists, hair stylists, and makeup artists.
Jill added, “I’m thrilled to join the dynamic creative team at Kobalt. My entire career has been built on my passion for music and discovering and nurturing talent. I’d like to thank Sue and Sas for the opportunity to bring that passion and my experience to this innovative and technology-powered music company."
When she's not discovering and nurturing creatives, Jill is studying photography, chasing sunsets, and likely watching the Lakers game from her home in Sherman Oaks, California.
