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.

The Walking Dead Season One: A New Day

It's hard to believe I've already gotten up to the first season of Walking Dead games with my posts to The Vault, but here we are!

These are a few selections from the score to the first episode of Telltale's smash hit. I tried to assemble a representative sample of all the various types of music that appear in the episode: a little bit of tense dread, a little bit of introspective family moments, stealthy sneaking, cinematic cutscene score, some full on zombie action, and, of course, Clementine's theme!
