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!

New Walking Dead Season 2 Music Posted

The exciting finale of the second season of Telltale Games' Walking Dead series was released earlier this week; so, in celebration of the season's climax, I've just posted Jane, a new music cue from the finale episode. You may find it at the bottom of my recent projects page for The Walking Dead Season Two: here.

It is a simple monophonic line that serves as the main theme for Jane and her personal philosophy of self reliance and detachment. I know it was a particular favorite of several of the designers and directors over the course of production, so I figured it would be a nice piece to share with the wider world. Thanks for listening!
