Musician Alanis Morissette was born June 1, 1974 in Ottawa, Canada. Morissette
began studying piano at age six and composing at seven; she wrote her first
songs at nine. By age 10 she was acting in a series on Nickelodeon. She used her
earnings to cut her first single. In 1995, her album Jagged Little Pill established
her as one of alternative rock’s foremost female vocalists of the 1990s.
On June 1, 1974, Alanis Nadine Morissette and her twin brother were born in
Ottawa, Canada, to Alan and Georgia Morissette. Both of her parents worked in
education, but from an early age, Morissette showed an aptitude for music. At
age six, she began taking piano lessons, and by the time she was nine, she was
writing her own songs. When she was eleven, Morissette joined the cast of a
Nickelodeon children’s show called You Can’t Do That on Television, and saved up
her earnings. In 1987, she used them to self-release her first track, “Fate Stay
With Me.” Despite her young age, Morissette’s music touched on themes of
loneliness and heartache from the start: “Fate Stay With Me” is about lost love.
The song caught the attention of record label MCA Canada; at age fourteen,
Morissette signed a contract with the company. She released a self-titled album,
Alanis, in 1991. The young singer then got her first taste of success: the album
went platinum, and even garnered her a Canadian Juno Award for Most Promising
Female Artist. Quickly following up on her first win in the dance-pop world,
Morissette released Now Is The Time (1992) a year later, though it did not reach
the same level of popularity.
Alanis Morissette’s career blossomed once again when she made it to the United
States. At age 18, she had moved to Toronto, but in 1994 she made a much
bigger move — to Los Angeles. There, she began a search for a team of
producers and collaborators to help her make a comeback from her commercially
disappointing second album. Morissette teamed up with industry veteran Glen
Ballard, and she began to approach songwriting more organically. Soon, she had
moved away from the more conventional dance-pop songs she began with. “It
was the beginning of a new way to approach songwriting altogether,” Morissette
explained. “I was old enough to be able to write autobiographically and stand by
the philosophical subject matter in my songs.”
The result of Morissette’s collaboration with Ballard was Jagged Little Pill, which
was released in 1995 by Maverick Records. With its edgy, alternative sound, the
single “You Oughta Know” struck a strong chord with listeners. MTV was in its
heyday, and the single received heavy airplay; demand for subsequent singles off
Jagged Little Pill was steady. In 1996, the album won several Grammy Awards,
including Album of the Year. While the mid-1990s saw no shortage of outspoken
female rock stars, Morissette seemed particularly to appeal to teenage
audiences, who felt she had given them a genuine voice for their angst and
In response to the album’s popularity, Morissette toured relentlessly during the
year of its release, but the busy schedule took a toll on her mental and physical
health. At the end of that run, she withdrew temporarily from the music business,keeping a low profile and attempting to renew her sense of self. She says of that
time period: ”Everything snowballing as it did was a lot to digest, and I really
didn’t have the energy or the clarity or the understanding or the handbook to do
that. Now, my handbook would say, ‘Cry when you need to cry, talk when you
need to talk and stop when you need to stop.”’
It wasn’t long before the singer was back in the studio, this time recording songs
with an altogether different tone. The songwriter herself described many of
Jagged Little Pill’s songs as reactionary, whereas the songs on her next album
Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie (1998) were more about redemption and
reconciliation than anger. In the end, fans found these introspective songs just as
cathartic as the singer did, sending the album to the top of the charts.
Despite her past success in collaborating with Ballard, Morissette decided to go it
alone in 2001, writing and producing the album Under Rug Swept by herself,
including the hit single “Hands Clean.” The record sold a million copies in the U.S.
and went platinum in Canada. Her next album, So-Called Chaos (2004), did as
well only by half, and was met with mixed critical reviews. The formerly angsty
pop star toured that year with the Barenaked Ladies and, in 2005, opened for the
Rolling Stones.
In 2007, Morissette took what she would later describe as a much-needed break
from her own music, and recorded a cover of The Black Eyed Peas’ “My Humps.”
The video, which both parodies the sugary-pop hit and gently mocks Morissette’s
own mournful and serious signature vocals, became a runaway favorite on
YouTube. No stranger to the camera, Morissette appeared onscreen not only as a
child actor, but again as an adult in both movies and television. She took a role in
the film Dogma (1999), and played a recurring character on the television show
Weeds from 2009 to 2010.
Alanis Morissette’s next album, Flavors of Entanglement (2008), was recorded on
the heels of her breakup with actor Ryan Reynolds, whom Morissette had been
dating since 2002. With her hallmark openness, the singer later admitted that the
album was a necessary form of catharsis following that emotionally trying time.
In May 2010, Morissette married Mario “MC Souleye” Treadway, and later that
year, their daughter, Ever Imre Morissette-Treadway, was born.
Morissette continues to write, sing, and perform, and also appears onstage to
support a wide breadth of charities. The Grammy winner’s devotion to emotional
honesty, as well as her belief in vulnerability as an essential part of the human
condition, comes through in each of her ventures. Far from seeing this as an
expression of weakness, Morissette explains, ”The more vulnerable and the more
confused the song is, the equal and opposite effect is how I feel after having
written it and the deeper I go admitting fear, admitting the confusion, the clearer
I usually feel. I don’t really feel vulnerable; I feel empowered by it.”
