Who is Alanis Morissette?

Alanis Nadine Morissette aka Alanis Morissette is a Canadian-American singer, songwriter, and actress. Known for her emotive mezzo-soprano voice and confessional songwriting, Morissette began her career in Canada in the early 1990s with two highly successful dance-pop albums. Afterward, as part of a recording deal, she moved to Holmby Hills, Los Angeles. In 1995, she released Jagged Little Pill, an alt rock-oriented album with the elements of post-grunge, which sold more than 33 million copies globally and is her most critically acclaimed work to date. This earned her the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1996 and was made into a rock musical of the same name in 2017, which earned 15 Tony Award nominations including Best Musical. The album was also listed in the 2003 and 2020 editions of Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time Guide. Her highly anticipated, more experimental follow-up, electronic-infused album Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie, was released in 1998.

Alanis Morissette Career

Morissette recorded her first demo called “Fate Stay with Me”, produced by Lindsay Thomas Morgan at Marigold Studios in Toronto, and engineered by Rich Dodson of Canadian classic rock band The Stampeders. A second demo tape was recorded on cassette in August 1989 and sent to Geffen Records, but the tape has never been heard as it was stolen, among other records, in a burglary of the label’s headquarters in October 1989.

In 2001, Morissette was featured with Stephanie McKay on the Tricky song “Excess”, which is on his album Blowback. Morissette released her fifth studio album, Under Rug Swept, in February 2002. For the first time in her career, she took on the role of sole writer and producer of an album. Her band, comprising Joel Shearer, Nick Lashley, Chris Chaney, and Gary Novak, played the majority of the instruments; additional contributions came from Eric Avery, Dean DeLeo, Flea, and Meshell Ndegeocello.

Morissette assumed creative control and producing duties for her subsequent studio albums, including Under Rug Swept (2002), So-Called Chaos (2004), Flavors of Entanglement (2008), and Havoc and Bright Lights (2012). Her latest album, Such Pretty Forks in the Road, was released in 2020. Her well-known singles “You Oughta Know”, “Hand in My Pocket”, “Ironic”, “You Learn”, “Head Over Feet”, “Uninvited”, “Thank U” and “Hands Clean” reached top 40 in the major charts around the world, including 10 top-40 hits in the UK, 3 top-10 in the US and Australia and 12 top-10 hits in her native Canada. She also holds the record of the most No. 1s on the weekly Billboard Alternative Songs chart among any female soloist, group leader or duo member. Morissette won 7 Grammy Awards, 14 Juno Awards, 1 Brit Award and has sold more than 75 million records worldwide and has been dubbed the “Queen of Alt-Rock Angst” by Rolling Stone.

Morissette was originally scheduled to embark on a world tour for 25th anniversary of Jagged Little Pill in June 2020 with Garbage and Liz Phair, both already opened for Morissette in 1999 during Junkie Tour. The latter cancelled her shows in North America and was replaced by Cat Power instead. Due to COVID-19 pandemic, the tour was postponed to summer 2021. Beth Orton announced that she will join to UK and Europe leg of the summer tour 2022.

On May 18, 2022, Morissette premiered the new track Safety-Empath in Paradise. The new album of meditation music titled The Storm Before the Calm will be released on June 17, 2022.

Morissette was raised in a devout Roman Catholic family in Canada. She became a US citizen in 2005, while retaining her Canadian citizenship. Morissette has since then been a practising Buddhist.

In the 2021 documentary Jagged, Morissette said that multiple men committed statutory rape against her when she was 15 years old.

In 1996, Morissette bought a home in Brentwood, Los Angeles. She also had an apartment in Ottawa and a home in Malibu, the latter of which was affected by the Woolsey Fire. In 2019, she and her family moved to Northern California, stating in an interview with The New York Times that she was “finally done with living in Los Angeles”.
