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.
Since 1995, Alanis Morissette has been one of the most influential singer-songwriter-musicians in contemporary music. Her deeply expressive music and performances have earned vast critical praise and seven Grammy awards. Morissette’s 1995 debut, “JAGGED LITTLE PILL,” was followed by nine more eclectic and acclaimed albums. She has contributed musically to theatrical releases and has acted on the big and small screen. Outside of entertainment, she is an avid supporter of female empowerment, as well as spiritual, psychological and physical wellness. In 2016, Alanis launched Conversation with Alanis Morissette, a monthly podcast that features conversations with a variety of revered authors, doctors, educators, and therapists, covering a wide range of psychosocial topics extending from spirituality to developmentalism to art. On December 5, 2019, “JAGGED LITTLE PILL” the musical made its Broadway debut at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City, and was nominated for fifteen Tony Awards. Most recently, Alanis released her ninth studio album, Such Pretty Forks In The Road, to rave reviews. For more information see www.alanis.com.
