Donnie Barren, whose "Can't You See The World Through My Eyes" was used in Season 2 of the Netflix hit show "GLOW," played lead guitar for the LA rock band "City Lights" in the late 1970's/early 1980's, writing songs for the group's single and EP. Donnie ventured out on his own and released the single "I Love My Cat's Meow/Falling In Love" in March 1983, acting as musician/writer/producer/promo-man.
Cat's Meow entered KROQ's "Rodney on the Roq's" Top 10 in April, 1983, and then spent the next two months at #1 (May/June). At the time, KROQ (FM 106.7) was the #1 AOR station in LA and was regarded as the new music trend-setter across the US. We re-released these songs in 2005 (along with nine other tracks recorded in 1983) so people could hear Donnie's early music.
Lately, he has been recording/playing lead guitar with various Seattle groups, and released an original collection of rock instrumentals using his full name (Donnie Barren Holtzinger) on a CD titled "Freedom"(2014).
