Donnie Barren, whose "Can't You See The World Through My Eyes" was used in Netflix's "GLOW," played lead guitar for the LA rock band "City Lights" in the late 70's/early 80's (with groups like Ratt opening for them). Donnie ventured out on his own and had success with the single "I Love My Cat's Meow" in 1983, spending 2 months at #1 on KROQ's "Rodney on the Roq's" Top 10 in LA.

While shopping a Cat's Meow album package to record companies, he became intrigued with the business side of music and took a break to finish school (earning an MBA from Harvard). He then dove into the biz world (albeit not the music biz), working at P&G and Microsoft.

Realizing that his kids were old enough to understand a bit about music, he re-released "Cat's Meow" in 2005, hoping that the CD would spur a musical interest his children.

He left the corporate world in 2015 and is back to playing with various Seattle bands as well as collaborating with songwriters and producers from around the world.
