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 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!
