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: Useful to Boot

Reality 2.0 was one of those rare games where I was able to reimagine everything I'd already written for the series in a new context. The score wasn't 100% chiptune reimaginings of the existing season music, though. "Useful to Boot" was an all new song, specially crafted for the C.O.P.S. (all of whom I voiced, by the way).

We are useful! We are fruitful! Everything that boots is beautiful!
