Jared Emerson-Johnson

I make music for video games.

Hi there. I'm Jared Emerson-Johnson. For the past decade or so 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 Sam & Max series from Telltale Games, or perhaps you have found yourself here because of my more recent work on The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Tales From the Borderlands, and/or Game of Thrones (also from Telltale).

Regardless of what brought you here, welcome! I hope I can provide you with whatever you're looking for.

NAVGTR Award Nomination

Yesterday I was happy to discover that my score to The Wolf Among Us has been nominated for Best Original Dramatic Score (Franchise) by the National Academy of Video Game Trade Reviewers.

Thanks to the NAVGTR for including my work in their list of excellent nominees, and congratulations to all of the other fine people who have been nominated (especially my colleagues from The Wolf Among Us and Walking Dead Season 2—including Adam Harrington for Bigby Wolf, Melissa Hutchison for Clementine, Gavin Hammon for Kenny, Scott Porter for Luke, as well as the writing, design, and directing staffs of both games). It is great to be in such lovely company.
