Rob Johnston, known as Qpid in the music world, is a talented new artist breaking into the Canadian music scene. Qpid, who was born and raised in Orillia, Ontario, is another example of amazing small town Canadian talent. His musical influences are diverse and include artists from both the Hip Hop and R&B world. Qpid started playing around with music when he was a teenager, having that dream of becoming a celebrity, like many young people do. It turns out he had a natural talent!
> As a young performer, Qpid worked on music in a group and tried to take his music into the United States. Qpid was very close to breaking into the national music scene; however, youth and limited knowledge of how the music industry functioned, led him to people who tried to take advantage of him. Some hard lessons and life experiences forced Qpid to put his music career on hold. Starting his own business shortly after took over his time, but a car accident changed that, leaving him with a year and a half of rehabilitation and pain. The accident turned Qpid's life upside down, not allowing him to continue working while forcing him to lose almost everything he had worked for. Trying to cope with his daily pain and financial stress Qpid turned to his father for advice. After a long talk with his dad and some soul searching, what he needed to do was clear. Qpid reconnected with his love for music and began to go after his dream full force.
> Qpid has lived throughout Canada and has travelled extensively. He puts family first and is proud to be able to share his talent and blessings with them. Qpid’s determination, sex appeal, business savvy and ability to flow to the music that we all love to listen to, make him an up and coming artist to watch for! He is sure to keep growing in this industry and become a household name!
