Ferbrache's time with the group was short but momentous. After Horsepower left A&M Records, Ferbrache manned the sliders on several of the band's subsequent albums and Edwards's post-Horsepower recordings. He's also been behind the boards for releases by many other noteworthy pioneers of the so-called Denver sound. A master craftsman, Ferbrache approaches each of his friends' projects as a unique piece of art, taking painstaking care with each recording. In fact, he's been known to take several months to perfect his mixes. As a result, the albums sound amazing -- particularly his most recent effort, The Fall I Fell, Cooke's debut.
Ferbrache is pleased with how it turned out. "I love the first note of the first song," he says. "The vocals are phenomenal. I hope it makes him famous. I'd like to see somebody like that have success. I'd like to see him become a significant artist. In this tight-knit community, nobody has even heard this album, and everybody already knows he's a significant artist."
Indeed. Ian O'Dougherty, Cooke's Uphollow bandmate, recently sent a note echoing this notion. "I've been very encouraged by the initial responses of friends," he says. "It's definitely the best thing I've ever produced or played on."
