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.

Game Music Online Award Nominations

This past weekend I learned that Game Music Online nominated Julian and me for our work on The Walking Dead Season 2 last year.

We are in extraordinarily good company in a couple of different categories: "Outstanding Achievement – Cinematic Music" and "Outstanding Achievement – Voice Dialogue."

The most surprising and humbling of all was that they also nominated me for "Outstanding Contribution – Western Composer" in their Artists of the Year category (specifically for my work on WD Season 2 and Tales from the Borderlands)!

Thanks to VGM Online and to everyone out there who notices and appreciates the work we do. Honestly, it would be more than enough just to be able to do the work we do year after year; to get this kind of recognition really means a lot to us!
