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.

Poker Night 2

Here are a few selections from "Poker Night 2," Telltale's follow up to "Poker Night at the Inventory." Like it's predecessor, this sequel featured new arrangements and recordings of tunes from the various franchises the game's characters inhabit. For the sequel we opted for a different style of cover—rather than the guitar based bar band we had for the first installment, we went for a somewhat more upscale, jazzy sound in Poker Night 2. Still maintaining the loose, "live" feeling of the original, this was a fun new way to hear some of the familiar tunes from The Walking Dead, The Venture Bros., Borderlands 2, Sam & Max Save the World, and Army of Darkness.
