Jared Emerson-Johnson

I make music for video games.

Hi! I'm Jared Emerson-Johnson.

Since 2002 I've been the music man at Bay Area Sound—writing music, creating sound design, directing voiceover and acting in all sorts of games and occasionally in other media.

You may know me from my scores to the Walking Dead or Wolf Among Us series from Telltale Games, or perhaps you have found yourself here because of my more recent work on Batman, Guardians of the Galaxy, or Tales From The Borderlands.

Regardless of what initially brought you here, welcome! I hope I can provide you with whatever you're looking for—if not, please feel free to reach out and ask!

The Vault: "The Long Wait" (from America's Army: Rise of a Soldier)

Hey everybody, this week we've got a track from Secret Level and Ubisoft's "America's Army: Rise of a Soldier," a game we worked on back in 2005. If memory serves, this cue was intended for a mission briefing. It is called The Long Wait.

This score was a really fun collaboration between myself and @HarmonyMachine. Dave handled all of the guitar and other rock instruments and I did the orchestral elements. This particular track was 100% me, though.
