Alanis Morissette is a Canadian singer-songwriter, record producer and actress known for “You Oughta Know,” “Ironic” and her 1995 album Jagged Little Pill. Rolling Stone has dubbed her the Queen of Alt-Rock Angst.
The hallmark of Morissette’s music is her commitment to expressing herself and her feelings as authentically as possible. Along with contemporaries like Tori Amos, Liz Phair, KT Tunstall and Garbage, Morissette opened up a lane for female singer-songwriters to express themselves and their anger, also bringing more women to mainstream music in the late 90s.
She began her career in the early 1990s with two mildly successful dance-pop albums. Then she moved to Los Angeles, transformed herself into an alt-rock singer-songwriter and began working on what was to become her third studio album, Jagged Little Pill, with producer Glen Ballard.
Jagged Little Pill made Morissette a critic’s darling when it was released, going on to earn six Grammy nominations as well as win the Grammy Award for Album of the Year and Best Rock Album in 1996.
Morissette struggled with depression, anorexia and bulimia when she was in her teens and twenties. In 2009, Morissette ran a marathon to promote awareness for the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA).
Morissette overcame her eating disorder by meeting with a therapist. She now speaks about mindfulness, one of the practices that helped her tremendously.
