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: The Devil's Playhouse — They Stole Max's Brain!

"They Stole Max's Brain" was a fun mid-season bridge episode, and a chance to come up with quite a few new jazzy themes for the back half of the season. It was also a great chance to do some very specific genre pieces, like the interrogations track, the noir driving montage, the "old world" throne room track, and others!
