She then concentrated on a musical career after leaving the show's cast, signing a music publishing contract when she was 14.The publishing contract led to a record deal with MCA Canada, and Morissette moved to Toronto before releasing her debut album, Alanis, in 1991.

And she continued to release well-received albums, from the multi-platinum Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie to the self-produced Under Rug Swept.

Morissette was born in Ottawa, Canada, and began playing piano and writing songs during her childhood years.

She also joined the cast of You Can't Do That on Television, a children's television program.

Using money that she earned on the show, Morissette recorded an independent single, "Fate Stay with Me," which was released when she was only ten years old.

In 1992, Morissette released Now Is the Time, an album that closely resembled her debut.

Like its predecessor, it was a success in Canada, even if its sales did not match those of Alanis.Following the release of Now Is the Time, Morissette relocated to Los Angeles, where she met veteran producer Glen Ballard in early 1994.Singer/songwriter Alanis Morissette became one of the most unlikely stars of the 1990s on the strength of her third album, Jagged Little Pill.A former child actress turned dance-pop diva, Morissette transformed herself into a confessional alternative singer/songwriter in the vein of Liz Phair and Tori Amos.However, she bolstered that formula with enough pop sensibility, slight hip-hop flourishes, and marketing savvy to become a superstar.Jagged Little Pill, released in 1995, spun off six highly successful singles and earned Morissette several Grammy Awards the following year, including Album of the Year.
