Jared Emerson-Johnson

I make music for video games.

Hi! I'm Jared Emerson-Johnson.

Since 2002 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 Walking Dead or Wolf Among Us series from Telltale Games, or perhaps you have found yourself here because of my more recent work on Batman, Guardians of the Galaxy, or Tales From The Borderlands.

Regardless of what initially brought you here, welcome! I hope I can provide you with whatever you're looking for—if not, please feel free to reach out and ask!

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.
