Biography edit · view history

Jared Emerson-Johnson is an award winning music composer, sound designer, voice director, and voice actor. His critically acclaimed work for games and other media has earned him several awards and has established him as a leading force in the world of interactive audio.

Until recently, his best known works were the scores for the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd seasons of Sam & Max graphic adventure games for Telltale Games (including deluxe 2-disc soundtrack albums), but his 2013 B.A.F.T.A. nominated score to The Walking Dead has eclipsed much of his earlier work.

Other recent scores are Back to the Future: The Game, Puzzle Agent 2, Jurassic Park: The Game, and The Wolf Among Us, based on the Fables comics.

In addition to his composition training, Jared is classically trained in conducting, violin, and voice. He holds a bachelor of arts degree (summa cum laude) from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.

Jared also teaches musical theater and opera performance to young singers. He performs regularly with a number of bands and classical ensembles. For the past several years he has been a featured lecturer and panel participant at the Game Developersā€™ Conference and Wondercon.

Jared lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area.
