Current members Blake Edward Conley

droneroom is a one-man drone/experimental project. With Blake Conley as the sole member, the project originated in his hometown of Nashville, Tennessee as a side project. In the project's first few years, Conley recorded two EPs and two albums under the droneroom name. Upon moving to Louisville in 2016, droneroom would begin performing live and work on new material, eventually leading up to Jesus Year in 2018 to positive reviews.

droneroom's sound is based in minimalist drones but also country-esque rhythms along with pedal loops to create a fuller effect. Vocals are sparse but occasional.

Following the release of Jesus Year, droneroom would sign with Somewherecold Records for their next album I'll Make It Up To You, I Swear..., along with performing throughout the Kentucky and Tennessee area. In 2020 droneroom would follow with another studio album, a compilation album and a CD re-issue of Jesus Year. In late 2020 Conley would re-locate to Las Vegas, Nevada. Through 2020 and 2021 Conley would release an EP and two studio albums to coincide with Bandcamp Fridays.
