Who is Alanis Morissette?
Alanis Nadine Morissette is a Canadian-American musician, singer, songwriter and actress. Known for her emotive mezzo-soprano voice, Morissette began her career in Canada in the early 1990s with two mildly successful dance-pop albums. After moving to Los Angeles and teaming up with Glen Ballard, she revolutionized the music industry with her American debut, Jagged Little Pill.

Writing on her official website, Alanis says:
today is mental health action day… i’m sharing a song entitled “rest” written specifically about those of us who struggle with depression and anxiety, isolation, suicidal ideation and the profound despair that mental illness can plunge us into. go to mentalhealthishealth.us to learn how you can help support yourself and others today & every day.
Apologies for the delay in getting this posted – the site was being moved to a new server that took longer than I expected. Nonetheless, we’re back (and hopefully faster than before for everyone), and with it comes some more updates!
Alanis released this song on April 16, with its accompanying video coming out simultaneously. The solemn ballad is written very poignant for the times we’re currently in, reflecting on Alanis wanting to be on the road again and performing with her backing band.
