Glove Compartment is the piano laden project from 'The Candle Thieves' keyboard wizard The Glock aka Anthony Shiels. Hailing from the suburbs of Cambridgeshire, Glove Compartment makes pocket symphonies centered around the intricacies of Anthony's piano playing blended with a touch of dry wit and at times brutal lyricism.

The band name was born from Anthony's habit of recording home demos and housing them in the glove compartment of his rickety car for reference. The musical sound evokes nostalgia of the great writers of the last generation. Growing up with Billy Joel, Randy Newman, Elton John and Ben Folds Five playing on his walkman has evidently left a musical scar.

The debut album 'The Art Of Pretending' was recorded in Leeds, UK in the autumn of 2018 and was released worldwide in February 2019.

I am incredibly grateful for the service, with no touring in 2020, the money I've earned from streams in China through Musicinfo has literally made it possible for me to keep going and to record new songs next year.
