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.

    “Jared Emerson-Johnson’s subtle score complements these visuals to great effect.“ - Zam on The Walking Dead: A New Frontier “In true Telltale style, we get a lot of great dialogue and typically strong voice acting, as well as a reliably evocative score from Jared Emerson-Johnson..“ - Gameumentary on The Walking Dead: A New Frontier “The voice acting is excellent – as is the music by long-time series composer Jared Emerson-Johnson.“ - Alternative Magazine Online on The Walking Dead: A New Frontier “Jared Emerson-Johnson continues to produce excellent music. Every piece in the episode fits perfectly and the rather haunting tune that plays over the credits is hard to forget.“ - Cubed Gamers on The Walking Dead: A New Frontier “Το soundtrack φέρει την υπογραφή του συνήθους.. υπόπτου Jared Emerson-Johnson, o οποίος “ντύνει” και πάλι μαεστρικά με τις μελωδίες του τη νέα δουλειά της Telltale Games.“ - Gameworld on The Walking Dead: A New Frontier “[Jared Emerson-Johnson] does a great job with setting the tone of the games when they need it and it continues to work well with this series.“ - GotGame on The Walking Dead: A New Frontier “The soundtrack by Jared Emerson-Johnson is powerful, as usual; he continues to blend electronic sounds with the more orchestral to create an environment of constant unease, waxing and waning as the tension increases or dissipates, and when the animation is working they go together very well.“ - Gameumentary on The Walking Dead: A New Frontier “Jared Emerson-Johnson’s excellent score has never once felt out of place.“ - The Digital Fix on The Walking Dead: A New Frontier “Y no hay que olvidarse de la banda sonora, temas tranquilos y al mismo tiempo tensos, acompañando al pie de la letra cada momento de cada episodio. Obviamente, dicha banda sonora ha sido obra de Jared Emerson-Johnson, el compositor de Telltale por excelencia. No hay más que ver su historial, la mayoría de sus obras son las bandas sonoras que suenan en los juegos de Telltale Games.“ - Game It on The Walking Dead: A New Frontier “La música corre a cuenta del gran Jared Emerson-Johnson compositor de muchas bandas sonoras de videojuegos y en concreto de muchas de las aventuras de Telltale Games. El compositor americano nos vuelve a deleitar con una banda sonora a la altura de lo que se espera de un juego tan aclamado por la crítica como The Walking Dead, realizando pistas nuevas y remezclando algunas del pasado que sin duda aquellos jugadores de las primeras temporadas sabrán reconocer en todo momento.“ - Meristation on The Walking Dead: A New Frontier
