Thanks to her breakthrough 1995 GRAMMY-winning album Jagged Little Pill, Alanis Morissette is cemented in music history as one of the first female artists with the courage to expose her frustrations over failed romances in starkly honest terms, striking enough of a public chord to eventually sell more than 16 million copies in the United States. Jagged Little Pill reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200, spawned four GRAMMYs, including Album Of The Year and Best Rock Album, and earned the singer a nomination for the prestigious Best New Artist award.

Morissette’s raw talent continued to propel her into Top 10 stardom with subsequent releases, including her last release, 2008’s Flavors Of Entanglement. In the four years since, Morissette has married rapper Mario “MC Souleye” Treadway and given birth to a son, Ever Imre.

As she prepares to release her new album, Havoc And Bright Lights, on Aug. 28, the Ottawa, Ontario native discussed developing her unique voice as an artist, the impact motherhood has had on her songwriting and plans for the future, among other topics.
