Known for her emotive mezzo-soprano voice, Morissette began her career in Canada in the early 1990s with two mildly successful dance-pop albums.

EP 89 – Alanis Morissette What a thrill today is for me. My guest is Alanis Morissette. It is no exaggeration when I say Alanis is my favorite musical artist of all time. I am so honored to get to spend this time interviewing Alanis. It is not surprising that her music resonates with me. We love talking about all the same things. We love diving deep. Exploring our inner selves, to get the best out of life for us and everyone we spend time with. Alanis and I talk about motherhood, partnership, friendship, and yes music. Alanis was kind enough to walk me through a bit of her artistic process behind “Such Pretty Forks in the Road.” We talked about everything from being on stage, to meditation, to unschooling. We covered some ground. I can’t wait to be at an Alanis Morissette concert again…and guess what, neither can she. Enjoy today’s episode.
As a nice treat for all of us, Alanis released the demo for Predator, one of the songs that became a part of the Jagged Little Pill musical. You can listen to it via her official YouTube channel below, and I’ve embedded the Spotify link underneath.
