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!

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People: A Food Related Love

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People didn't have a lot of custom music (most of it was pulled directly from the Homestar Runner cartoons; but, there were a few, really fun tunes that I got to write for the project. This was probably the most fun for me. The lyrics were collaboratively written by Mike Stemmle, Matt Chapman, and Mike Chapman, and the vocals are sung by Matt Chapman.

A scratch version of this exists with me singing the vocals, but I'll never share it. Well, maybe if people ask very nicely.
