Jared Nathaniel Emerson-Johnson (born October 13, 1981) is an American video game music composer, sound designer, voice director and voice actor, and protégé of veteran video game music composer Clint Bajakian. Emerson-Johnson is one of the three key individuals in Bay Area Sound, an audio production company specializing in sound design, music and voiceover for video games.[1]

His first work was in 2003, where he worked as a member of LucasArts' musical department on a variety of games, including Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb and Star Wars: Republic Commando. Emerson-Johnson has also worked as a sound editor for other companies' projects, such as James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and Psychonauts. More recently, Emerson-Johnson was the composer behind the video games produced by Telltale Games, such as Bone, Sam & Max, Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, and Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures.

In all three seasons of Sam & Max he plays the C.O.P.S., a group of obsolete computers, and in Telltale Games' Tales of Monkey Island series, he plays the Marquis DeSinge as well as the Thief.

In 2004, Emerson-Johnson received the Game Audio Network Guild's "Rookie of the Year" award. Jared's score, voice direction, and sound design for Telltale Games' 'Bone: The Great Cow Race were finalists for the 2007 Independent Games Festival. His score for Telltale Games' Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space was also a finalist for Best Original Score in the 2008 IGN PC Awards. He shares an AdventureGamers.com 2009 Aggie award for best voice acting for his work on Tales of Monkey Island [2].
