Eric Johanson aka Atak 1 believes that opportunity and success in the music business is within his reach. As a teenager, he left Peoria, Illinois with his mother and headed for Denver where he now resides. Growing up in the new city, proved to be rough as he dealt with inner city struggles.

Now as a father of two, Atak 1 has put all negativity behind him and is completely focused on building his career in the music business. With over 14 years of recording experience, Atak 1 is ready to make a national impact. "Che" his 5th solo album, released in April of this year, is proof that Atak 1 is a force to be reckoned with. His raw delivery combined with lyrical street vocals is a combination that sets him apart from competition.

To date, Atak has released five albums, and six mixtapes with two of those hosted by the worldwide DJ the Empire.
