Alanis Nadine Morissette (born June 1, 1974) is a Canadian-born singer-songwriter, record producer, and actress. She has won twelve Juno Awards and seven Grammy Awards, and has sold more than 55 million albums worldwide.[1][2] Morissette began her career in Canada, and as a teenager recorded two dance-pop albums, Alanis and Now Is the Time, under MCA Records. Her international debut album was the rock-influenced Jagged Little Pill, which is the best-selling debut album by a female artist in the U.S., and the highest selling debut album worldwide in music history.[3][4] According to RIAA and United World Charts, Alanis is defined as the biggest selling female rock artist in music. Her following album, Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie, was released in 1998 and was a success as well. Morissette took up producing duties for her subsequent albums, which include Under Rug Swept, So-Called Chaos and her upcoming release Flavors of Entanglement. Alanis became an American citizen in 2005.[5] One thing she is well known for, is her extensive use of vocabulary, creating an almost confusing songwriting technique, which works in her favour to create intriguing songs.

Early life

Alanis Morissette was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, the daughter of Georgia Mary Ann Feuerstein, a Hungarian-born teacher, and Alan Richard Morissette, a French-Canadian high school principal.[6] Alanis has a twin brother, Wade, and an older brother, Chad. At the age of six, she began playing the piano and realized she wanted to express herself through the arts.[7] In 1984, Morissette wrote her first song, "Fate Stay with Me", which she sent to a local folk singer, Lindsay Morgan, who recruited Morissette as his protégé.[7] Morissette released "Fate Stay with Me" as a single via a label she founded with Morgan. A limited number of copies were pressed, and it received little airplay.[7]-1... This article is about the Canadian province. ... Canadiens redirects here. ... Pianoforte redirects here. ...

At a New York City audition, Morissette landed a spot on Star Search, a popular American talent competition on which she used the stage name of Alanis Nadine, her first and middle names. Morissette flew to Los Angeles to appear on the show, but lost after one round. In 1988, Morissette signed a publishing deal with MCA Publishing, which helped to fund her record deal with one of its independent subsidiary labels.[8] During her high school years, she attended Immaculata High School and Glebe Collegiate Institute in Ottawa.

Music career

1990 – 1993: Alanis and Now Is the Time

MCA Records released Morissette's debut album, Alanis, in Canada only in 1991, and Morissette co-wrote every track on the album with its producer, Leslie Howe. By the time it was released, she had dropped her stage name and was credited simply as Alanis. The dance-pop album went platinum,[9] and its first single, "Too Hot", reached the top twenty on the RPM singles chart. Subsequent singles "Walk Away" and "Feel Your Love" reached the top forty. Morissette's popularity, style of music and appearance, particularly that of her hair, led her to become known as the Debbie Gibson of Canada;[7] comparisons to Tiffany were also common. During the same period, she was a concert opening act for rapper Vanilla Ice.[10] Morissette was nominated for three 1992 Juno Awards: Most Promising Female Vocalist of the Year (which she won), Single of the Year and Best Dance Recording (both for "Too Hot").[11] MCA Records was an American-based record company owned by MCA Inc. ...

In 1992, she released her second album, Now Is the Time, a ballad-driven record that featured less glitzy production than Alanis and contained more thoughtful lyrics.[7] Morissette wrote the songs with the album's producer, Leslie Howe, and Serge Côté. She said of the album, "people could go, 'Boo, hiss, hiss, this girl's like another Tiffany or whatever'. But the way I look at it ... people will like your next album if it's a kick-ass one."[10] As with Alanis, Now Is the Time was released only in Canada and produced three top forty singles—"An Emotion Away", the minor adult contemporary hit "No Apologies", and "(Change Is) Never a Waste of Time". It sold little more than half the copies of her first album, however, and was a commercial failure.[7][12] With her two-album deal with MCA Canada complete, Morissette was left without a major label contract.

1993 – 1995: Move to Los Angeles

In 1993, after graduating from high school, Morissette moved from Ottawa to Toronto.[7] Living alone for the first time in her life, she met with a bevy of songwriters, but the results frustrated her.[citation needed] A visit to Nashville a few months later also proved fruitless. In the hopes of meeting a collaborator Morissette began making trips to Los Angeles and working with as many musicians as possible. For other cities named Nashville, see Nashville (disambiguation). ...

During this time, she met producer and songwriter Glen Ballard, and within ten minutes of meeting each other they had begun experimenting creatively.[7] According to Morissette, Ballard was the first collaborator who encouraged her to express her emotions.[citation needed] The two wrote and recorded Morissette's third album, Jagged Little Pill, and by the spring of 1995, she had signed a deal with Maverick Records.

As Morissette later revealed,[citation needed] during her stay in L.A., a thief confronted and robbed her on a deserted street, although he did not take the writing and brainstorming notes in her purse; they were the scribblings that soon made up Jagged Little Pill. Morissette subsequently developed an intense and general angst, which manifested in random daily panic attacks, including on planes. She checked herself into a hospital and attended psychotherapy sessions, but with no improvement. She focused her inner problems on the soul-baring lyrics of the album for her own health.[citation needed] For other uses, see Angst (disambiguation). ... Panic attacks are sudden, discrete periods of intense anxiety, fear and discomfort that are associated with a variety of somatic and cognitive symptoms[1].

Maverick Records released Jagged Little Pill internationally in 1995. The album was expected only to sell enough for Morissette to make a follow-up, but the situation changed quickly when a DJ from an influential Los Angeles radio station began playing "You Oughta Know," the album's first single.[8] The song instantly garnered attention for its scathing, explicit lyrics,[7] and a subsequent music video went into heavy rotation on MTV and MuchMusic.

After the success of "You Oughta Know," the album's other hit singles helped send Jagged Little Pill to the top of the charts. "All I Really Want" and "Hand In My Pocket" followed, but the fourth U.S. single, "Ironic," became Morissette's biggest hit. "You Learn" and "Head over Feet", the fifth and sixth singles, respectively, kept Jagged Little Pill in the top twenty on the Billboard 200 albums chart for more than a year. According to the RIAA, Jagged Little Pill is the best-selling international debut album by a female artist, with more than fourteen million copies sold in the U.S.; it sold thirty million worldwide, making it the second biggest selling album by a female artist, and the biggest selling debut album of all time, even though it was actually her third album.[3][4] Morissette's popularity grew significantly in Canada, where the album was certified twelve times platinum[9] and produced four RPM chart-toppers: "Hand In My Pocket," "Ironic," "You Learn," and "Head over Feet". The album was also a bestseller in Australia and the United Kingdom.[13][14] All I Really Want for Christmas is the second Christmas album by Steven Curtis Chapman, released in September 2005. ...

Morissette's success with Jagged Little Pill was credited with leading to the introduction of female singers such as Tracy Bonham, Meredith Brooks, Patti Rothberg, Shakira and, in the early 2000s, Avril Lavigne and Pink.[15] She was criticised for collaborating with producer and supposed image-maker Ballard, and her previous albums also proved a hindrance for her respectability, particularly in her native country.[7][16] Morissette and the album won six Juno Awards in 1996: Album of the Year, Single of the Year ("You Oughta Know"), Female Vocalist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year and Best Rock Album.[17] At the 1996 Grammy Awards, she won Best Female Rock Vocal Performance, Best Rock Song (both for "You Oughta Know"), Best Rock Album and Album of the Year.[18] Tracy Bonham (born 16 March 1969 in Boston, Massachusetts) is an American musician best known for her single Mother Mother. ...

Later in 1996, Morissette embarked on an eighteen-month world tour in support of Jagged Little Pill, beginning in small clubs and ending in large venues. Taylor Hawkins, who later joined the Foo Fighters, was the tour's drummer. "Ironic" was nominated for two 1997 Grammy AwardsRecord of the Year and Best Music Video, Short Form[19]—and won Single of the Year at the 1997 Juno Awards, where Morissette also won Songwriter of the Year and the International Achievement Award.[20] The video Jagged Little Pill, Live, which was co-directed by Morissette and chronicled the bulk of her tour, won a 1998 Grammy Award for Best Music Video, Long Form.[21] Oliver Taylor Hawkins (born on February 17, 1972 in Fort Worth, Texas) is an American musician, best known as the drummer of the rock band Foo Fighters. ...

During the tour, Morissette became disillusioned with the music industry and declared being tired of constant travelling, quick and superficial relationships and parties full of drugs—subjects that made her consider ditching her career.[citation needed] She started practicing Iyengar Yoga for balancing, and after the last December 1996 show, she headed to India for six weeks, accompanied by her mother, two aunts and two female friends.[22] Yoga is not a religion, yoga is the science of religions B.K.S.

Morissette was featured as a guest vocalist on Ringo Starr's cover of "Drift Away" on his 1998 album, Vertical Man, and on the songs "Don't Drink the Water" and "Spoon" on the Dave Matthews Band album Before These Crowded Streets. She recorded the song "Uninvited" for the soundtrack to the 1998 film City of Angels. Although the track was never commercially released as a single, it received widespread radio airplay in the U.S. At the 1999 Grammy Awards, it won in the categories of Best Rock Song and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance, and was nominated for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media.[23] Later in 1998, Morissette released her fourth album, Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie, which she wrote and produced with Glen Ballard. Most of the tracks, including "Would Not Come" and "Unsent", challenged traditional song formulas:[citation needed] they included one-chord drone melodies and Morissette singing over letter-like prose texts;[citation needed] some songs lacked choruses or took a long time to reach them.[citation needed] Image File history File links Alanis_-_Thank_U_Sample. ...

Privately, the label hoped to sell a million copies of the album on initial release;[24] instead, it debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart with first-week sales of 469,000 copies—a record, at the time, for the highest first-week sales of an album by a female artist.[25] The wordy, personal lyrics on Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie alienated many fans, and after the album sold considerably less than Jagged Little Pill, many labelled it an example of the sophomore jinx.[7][26] However, it received positive reviews, including a four-star review from Rolling Stone.[27] In Canada, it won the Juno Award for Best Album and was certified four times platinum.[9][28] "Thank U", the album's only major international hit single, was nominated for the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance; the music video, which featured Morissette nude, generated mild controversy.[24][29] Morissette herself directed the videos for "Unsent" and "So Pure", which won, respectively, the MuchMusic Video Award for Best Director and the Juno Award for Video of the Year.[28][30] The "So Pure" video features actor Dash Mihok, with whom Morissette was in a relationship at the time.[24] The sophomore jinx, in sports, refers to the tendency for a player to follow a good season in his rookie year with a disappointing season. ...

Morissette contributed vocals to "Mercy" and "Innocence", two tracks on Jonathan Elias's project The Prayer Cycle, which was released in 1999. The same year, she released the live acoustic album Alanis Unplugged, which was recorded during her appearance on the television show MTV Unplugged. It featured tracks from her previous two albums alongside four new songs, including "King of Pain" (a cover of The Police song) and "No Pressure over Cappuccino", which Morissette wrote with her main guitar player, Nick Lashley. The recording of the Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie track "That I Would Be Good", released as a single, became a minor hit on hot adult contemporary radio in America. Also in 1999, Morissette released a live version of her song "Are You Still Mad" on the charity album Live in the X Lounge II.

Morissette hosted the Juno Awards of 2004 dressed in a bathrobe, which she took off to reveal a flesh-coloured bodysuit, a response to the era of censorship in the U.S. caused by Janet Jackson's breast-reveal incident during the Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show.[35] Morissette released her sixth studio album, So-Called Chaos, in May 2004. She wrote the songs on her own again, and co-produced the album with Tim Thorney and pop music producer John Shanks. The album debuted at number five on the Billboard 200 chart to generally mixed critical reviews, and it became Morissette's lowest seller in the U.S.[32] The lead single, "Everything", achieved major success on adult top 40 radio in America and was moderately popular elsewhere, particularly in Canada, although it failed to reach the top forty on the U.S. Hot 100. Because the first line of the song includes the word asshole, American radio stations refused to play it, and the single version was changed to include the word nightmare instead.[35] Two other singles, "Out Is Through" and "Eight Easy Steps", fared considerably worse commercially than "Everything", although a dance mix of "Eight Easy Steps" was a U.S. club hit.

Alanis Morissette - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3409 words)
Alanis Morissette was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, to Alan and Georgia Morissette.
Morissette would later reveal that during her stay in L.A. she was confronted on a deserted street, with a gun, and robbed.
Morissette was attacked for collaborating with producer and supposed image-maker Ballard, although she was responsible for all of Pill's lyrics and much of the album's music, and though such a collaboration was not uncommon for many solo artists at the time.
