The Cloud Room is an American band based in Brooklyn, New York. Their self titled album was released in 2005 and contains the hit "Hey Now Now", a song that garnered the band rapid popularity on MP3 blogs but, being an indie release, had difficulty getting airplay on Commercial American radio.
J Stuart, relative of American Minimalist Composer Philip Glass, founded The Cloud Room after moving from California to New York in 2000 to work with filmmaker Hal Hartley.
In 2004, Stuart suffered a health crisis, leading to a false positive HIV test result. It was during this time that he began writing songs, one of which would become "Hey Now Now". When the test was later proven false, Stuart decided to focus his life on his first love, music.
By the time The Cloud Room's debut album was released in 2005, the band consisted of J Stuart, Jon Petrow, Jason Pharr, Dave Horowitz and Steve Milton.
In 2006, "Hey Now Now" was named by Rolling Stone as a top ten single of the year. Later that year, as the band was recording their second album in J's apartment, a fire broke out and destroyed their equipment. However, the new recordings survived. In 2006/07, The Cloud Room became the first unsigned band to be used in an international ad campaign, for Pepsi.
