MORISSETTE JOINS WE ARE MOVING THE NEEDLE SOUNDBOARD

Seven-time Grammy winner Alanis Morissette is the latest Soundboard member of We Are Moving the Needle, a nonprofit aiming to close the gender gap in the recording industry's technical fields.

Joining the nonprofit’s founder, Emily Lazar (President/Chief Mastering Engineer of The Lodge), as well as a growing list of other Soundboard members—including Brandi Carlile, Maggie Rogers, Brittany Howard, HAIM, Vanessa Carlton, Christina Perri, Imogen Heap and Linda Perry—Morissette has also invited the organization to maintain a presence her on tour.

The "You Oughta Know" singer is observing the 25th anniversary of her 17-times platinum album, Jagged Little Pill, on the road with Garbage and Cat Power. She will highlight We Are Moving the Needle in a pre-show video; representatives will be on hand at most of the tour stops to provide info about how to get involved.

“Alanis opened the door for women to express themselves in both an assertive and beautiful way at a time when women were not welcome or encouraged to have a voice," said Lazar, who has collaborated with Morissette and was nominated for 2021 Album of the Year Grammys for her work with Coldplay, HAIM and Jacob Collier. "Celebrating the accomplishments of Jagged Little Pill by accompanying Alanis on tour could not be a better fit for We Are Moving the Needle."

Earlier this year, the fourth annual iteration of the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative study “Inclusion in the Recording Studio” revealed that in 2020, only 2% of producers and engineers were women. Through education, equipment, mentorship and more, We Are Moving the Needle aims to improve this statistic.
