About the Team
Josh Warriner, Founder & Artist Manager
I'm a twenty-year old entrepreneur and writer with a passion for music and the industry around it. Thanks to a program partnered with the TEMPO Educates Foundation at my high school, I was able to work with industry professionals and gain experience with many facets of the music business throughout my four years in high school. I am now pursuing a post-secondary education in the Creative Industries at Ryerson University.
Through my work in high school, I was tasked along with some teammates with the role of band manager for Sonic Democracy, a long-running music program which wrote, recorded, and performed live original and cover music. Thanks to this collaborative program with the TEMPO Educations Foundation, they released two full-length studio albums. Through facilitating these two releases, I gained a lot of experience with how the Canadian music business works, and have cultivated a passion for it.
This led me in June of 2018 to found Populus Music in order to pursue a career in the field I'm passionate about. I am the manager behind Bloom, Nathan Zinck, and Rylan Jeffrey.
Outside of music, I'm a writer pursuing publication and an avid consumer of music and movies.

Interested in collaborating? Get in touch!
I'm Brenna Larouche, and I'm an nineteen-year old marketing manager! Thanks to the opportunities presented to me through my time in Sonic Democracy, I have 2 years of experience in marketing, managing, distribution, and stage direction (and a bit of performance too). I've been a part of the release of 2 studio albums, countless concerts, and the filming of 2 music videos.
My passion and skills in the music industry led me to discover the Creative Industries program at Ryerson University, which I am currently studying.
Although I've technically been working behind the scenes here at Populus Music for a while, I am happy to be officially taking on the role of marketing manager, where I'll be coordinating social media efforts, helping to bring upcoming releases together, and plenty more!
Beyond music, I run my own business, where I craft and upcycle earrings and other jewellery, which you can check out here: Mystic Anura!
