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.

Sam & Max Beyond Space & Time: La Canción de los Mariachis

With lyrics by Chuck Jordan, and vocals sung by the one and only Roger L. Jackson, the Mariachi Song from Chariots of the Dogs is one of my favorite pieces from all of Telltale Games' Sam & Max Beyond Space & Time (a.k.a. season 2). It's just the most hilarious possible reveal that could come at that point in the story. "What's behind this locked door?" "Oh, it's a time traveling space mariachi." Of course.
