It has been 20 years since Morissette’s breakthrough debut of “Jagged Little Pill,” an album which earned four Grammys, sold 30 million records and spawned a dedicated worldwide fan base. She remains not only an enduringly popular artist, but one whose celebrated body of work stems from a fierce commitment to authenticity and, to an equal extent, vulnerability.
Her deeply expressive music and performances have earned vast critical praise, 12 Canadian Juno Awards, seven Grammy Awards (with an additional 14 nominations), a Golden Globe nomination and sales of over 60 million albums worldwide. Morissette’s 1995 debut, “Jagged Little Pill,” was followed by such eclectic and acclaimed albums as “Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie” (1998), “MTV Unplugged” (1999), “Under Rug Swept” (2002), “So-Called Chaos” (2004), “Jagged Little Pill Acoustic” (2005), her greatest hits album “The Collection” (2005), “Flavors of Entanglement” (2008) and “Havoc and Bright Lights” (2012).
