Biography
Producer and songwriter Glen Ballard earned his greatest success in partnership with Alanis Morissette on her 1995 blockbuster Jagged Little Pill. Ballard's studio career began with actor-singer Jack Wagner's 1984 album All I Need, which launched the hit title track; from there he worked with artists including Teddy Pendergrass and Ava Cherry, also playing synthesizer on Michael Jackson's 1987 effort Bad. After working on Barbra Streisand's Till I Loved You and Paula Abdul's Forever Your Girl, Ballard's production breakthrough came with the 1990 release of Wilson Phillips' smash self-titled debut; from there, he also collaborated with newcomers Curtis Stigers and Trey Lorenz. Co-writing and producing Jagged Little Pill with Morissette, he scored by far his biggest hit yet, also garnering a number of Grammy Awards; subsequent efforts included albums by Brendan Lynch and the Corrs, and through Capitol Records, in 1997 Ballard also formed his own label, Java. Two years later he wrote and produced the feature film Clubland. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
