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).

Excited that my song "Can't You See The World Through My Eyes?" is being used in Season 2 of the Netflix hit "GLOW"! If you are familiar with 80's music, you'll recognize some of the other songs, including "The Warrior" by Patty Smyth, "You May Be Right" by Billy Joel, "You Make My Dreams" by Hall & Oats, "Crazy For You" by Madonna, "Man on the Corner" by Genesis, and "Nothing's Going to Stop Us Now" by Starship.

Hi Donnie, It looks like we've been selected for a listing with Mike Davenport. I was wondering if he has provided any information about when he will be sending out the exclusive contract we are to peruse?
