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 work on the score remains stellar. He created the perfect tone and atmosphere for Bigby’s often extreme actions during his investigation.“- Gaming Illustrated on The Wolf Among Us: A Crooked Mile “Smoke & Mirrors…continues to feature incredible music, voice work and sound design.“- Gaming Illustrated on The Wolf Among Us: Smoke & Mirrors “The soundtrack expresses a dark and moody tone while still having fairytale elements like flutes and chimes. It’s incredibly well done. “- Cheat Code Central on The Wolf Among Us: Faith  "And then there is the music, which harnesses all of the fantastic, evocative synth of an ‘80s action movie. Think what would happen if John Carpenter had a chance to direct an adult animated version of Drive, and you’ll be in the same neck of the woods as Wolf. “- IGN on The Wolf Among Us: Faith “Jared Emerson-Johnson nails the soundtrack once again. “- Mixnmojo on The Wolf Among Us: Faith  “The quality music keeps with the ‘80s era and has a detective vibe. The voice actors are top-notch and make their parts believable “- Game Informer on The Wolf Among Us: Faith “The sound design and music are expertly rendered…[they're] as instrumental in conveying the flavor and feel of Fabletown as the excellent voice-acting. “- Escapist Magazine on The Wolf Among Us: Faith “With The Wolf Among Us, the art team are at the heart of the success, along with Jared Emerson-Johnson, whose musical contributions were hugely important to The Walking Dead's most effective moments. “- Rock, Paper, Shotgun on The Wolf Among Us
