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 Save the World: More Than Jerks

Okay! Here is the first is what will eventually be a whole mess of music from all of the various Sam and Max episodes I've scored over the years. This one is the song from the end of "Culture Shock," the first episode of season one (also known as Sam & Max Save the World), by Telltale Games. "More Than Jerks" is the theme song to the in-universe 70s TV sitcom featuring the Soda Poppers. Funny stuff. I believe the lyrics were written by the one and only Dave Grossman.
