How it began: Alanis Nadine Morisette was born in Ottawa, Canada, on June 1, 1974 as one of three children (older brother Chad and a twin brother Wade) of Alan Richard Morisette, high school principal, and Georgia Mary Ann Morisette née Feuerstein, teacher.

Since their childhood, both she and her brother inclined towards art and music (her twin brother Wade Imre Morisette is a well known musician and yoga instructor). Alanis played piano and drums since she was six, attended ballet and jazz dancing lessons and started writing songs. At the age of 11, from the proceeds of her regular participation in a CTV/Nickelodeon produced kids-show You Can’t Do That on Television, she published her first single, Fate Stay With Me. But it was when she was 14, after leaving the You Can’t Do That on Television show, that she signed her first publishing deal with MCA Canada in 1988 and published her first album, Alanis in 1991.

The album, mostly teenage pop and ballads, sold some 100 000 copies and landed Morisette a Juno Award for Most Promising Female Artist. This success was however restricted to Canada which didn’t change with her second album, Now Is the Time, released in 1992, before Morisette graduated from high school.

Despite being popular in her home country, Morisette moved to the L.A. in 1994, where she met producer and songwriter Glen Ballard. He persuaded her to explore the darker sides of herself in her music and express her emotions with it – which resulted in the sensational Jagged Little Pill, released internationally in 1995, and a subsequent contract with Madonna’s label Maverick Records.
