She used to play Stephanie Mills on the popular '70s television sitcoms All in the Family and Archie Bunker's Place, but singer/songwriter Danielle Brisebois is not that innocent little girl she once portrayed. Most known for her cut on the As Good As It Gets soundtrack, Brisebois' breezy yet cathartic vocals are hauntingly similar to those of another dominating female musician, Alanis Morissette. Brisebois is a raging woman with burning desires and disgusts, and such fire was captured on her debut Arrive All Over You. Released in 1994, a year prior to Morissette's mega-successful Jagged Little Pill, Arrive All Over You was lost in the slew of lingering grunge and harkening R&B artists. Arrive All Over You, which credits heavy collaborations with singer/producer/songwriter Gregg Alexander, did catch a brief buzz in Europe. Four years later, Brisebois was still working with Alexander, playing keyboards in his alterna-pop/rock group the New Radicals. They released one album, the multi-platinum Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too, but sudden stardom scared Alexander back to the production seat and pushed Brisebois back to the solo scene. Again joining forces with Alexander, Danielle Brisebois released her sophomore effort Portable Life in 1999. ~ MacKenzie WilsonPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
