New Yorker music critic Alex Ross has received two American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers Deems Taylor Awards for music criticism and a Letter of Distinction from the American Music Center for his contributions to contemporary music. His internationally bestselling book, The Rest is Noise—a cultural history of music since 1900—earned the 2007 National Book Critics Circle Award and a 2008 Pulitzer Prize nomination. His second book is an expansive survey of the musical scene, ranging from classical music artists to pop sensations such as Frank Sinatra, Led Zeppelin, and Björk.
