A lot could be written about how Terry got to this point in life but a line from his signature song “The Other Side of Darkness” says it all; “There are many roads to choose from, only one that’s right”. The problem was finding that one road in the end. Problem solved?
Terry has written songs for as long as he can remember, each song representing a moment or point in time that needed to be emotionally expressed and it’s now an archive of sorts, to a life well travelled.
There were many choices along the way and for a long time song-writing played second fiddle in an on again off again relationship that has led to the establishment of TK & 3TL.
TK & 3tl is a Collaborative Ensemble based in Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario. Established in 2017, the 3tl collaborative players are a Talented assortment of Artists and guests contributing their talents to the music and lyrics composed, written and arranged by Terry.
The 3tl project has been a long time coming and the journey has just begun. ”Take a Little Ride” (volume 1 of a 3-album trilogy entitled "Songs for Old Men”) was released August 15, 2019 and is now available.
The initial response to "Take a Little Ride" has been overwhelmingly positive being nominated in two categories at the 2019 Niagara Music Awards which include: Best Country Artist - Terry Kozachenko, Singer/Songwriter and Album of the Year.
Volume 2, "Tell Me A Story" is in production with a release date targeted for mid 2021. The first single Promised Land was released October 2020 and the 3rd and final volume, "Rest In Peace" is also planned for 2021, God willing. Songs for Old Men won’t be the end of the story and Terry looks forward to performing the songs from the project while continuing to develop and collaborate on songs from the many other genres that he’s compiled.
