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.

Back to the Future: The Game — It's About Time

This is the first installment of tracks I made for Telltale Games' Back to the Future series. Having a chance to work with with this franchise, and especially Alan Silvestri's incredible themes was absolutely wonderful. I had a great time teasing out new arrangements of the familiar tunes, and making my own in the same style and with the same palette.
