Born in Ottawa, Canada, Alanis Morissette became a star on the strength of her third album, Jagged Little Pill. She bolstered the confessional alternative singer/songwriter formula with enough pop sensibility, slight hip-hop flourishes, and marketing savvy to become a superstar, earning several Grammy Awards.
Morissette relocated to Los Angeles in early 1994, where she pursued an edgier, alternative rock-oriented direction, resulting in Jagged Little Pill, released in 1995, which achieved multi-platinum status. Subsequent singles “Hand in My Pocket," "All I Really Want," "You Learn," and "Ironic," kept the album in the Top Ten for 69 weeks, and earned six Grammy nominations and winning several, including Album of the Year and Song of the Year. In 2015, she celebrated the 20th anniversary of Jagged Little Pill through the release of a four-CD Collectors’ Edition reissue of the album.
