Brad Turcotte (born 14 November 1978), is a musician from Ottawa, Ontario. Turcotte performs under the name Brad Sucks. Promoting his music through sites such as Magnatune and ccMixter, as well as MySpace and Podsafe, he has used micropatronage to fund his albums, and releases his songs under a copyleft license,[1][2] granting freedom to share and modify his work.

Turcotte received free publicity through blogs and interviews in free culture magazines. His first full CD, I Don't Know What I'm Doing, was released through both Magnatune and a limited "professional" printing from his own website.


Early career[edit]

Turcotte opened his website in 2002 with the intention of producing "open source music". His self-produced single, Brad Sucks One, included the audio source files used to create the finished files, and later he posted these source files to his website along with the mp3s.

I Don't Know What I'm Doing was released independently and without charge online on the 19th of December 2003 in mp3 form. It was also released in CD form on the 7th of June 2005 through both Magnatune and a limited "professional" printing from his own website with an extended version of the final track.

Other work[edit]

Turcotte also runs the website stripcreator.com, which allows participants to create their own talking-head webcomics. He is also the creator of the now-defunct in4mador, an aggregator of user-submitted "interesting" links.[6] He is now working on some demos, and we may see the release of a new album.

Turcotte has his albums available on his website at Bradsucks.net. On the website there are two more albums. One is called I Don't Know What Im Doing Remixed. The album was designed by Brad, and other composers who put their own sound to his music, and song. Another album available on the website is Outside The Inbox, where he took other artists' music that he received in his email, and put it into an album. There was never an album art released to these records.
