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 — Beyond the Alley of the Dolls

The penultimate episode of Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse featured some of the most silly and some of the most badass music in the series. We start out with the guitar powered siege at Stinky's diner, proceed to the clone chamber, finishing at the Statue of Liberty, where Charlie is trying to summon a Lovecraftian elder god. Good times.
