The revered British singer/songwriter Linda Thompson's latest project, the aptly named "Proxy Music" features artists handpicked by Linda and her son (and album co-producer) Teddy Thompson, to record a new set of her tunes by "proxy".

Thompson, who Rolling Stone hailed as having "one of rock and roll's finest voices," has limited singing capabilities now due to a rare vocal condition. "Proxy Music", however, impressively showcases her songwriting range and prowess.

Tracks like Darling This Will Never Do and Mudlark hold a timeless quality, while Those Damn Roches and John Grant (sung by John Grant himself) boast very modern sensibilities. "Proxy Music" contains performances from Linda's long-time friends and admirers as Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright, Eliza Carthy, The Proclaimers, Dori Freeman, and Grant, along with many talented Thompsons, including her children Teddy and Kami, and her ex-husband Richard Thompson playing guitar on several tracks.

"Music in my family," Thompson shares. "It's like glue. It binds us."
