Donnie Barren, whose "Can't You See The World Through My Eyes" was used in 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 spent two months (May/June, 1983) at # 1 on KROQ's "Rodney on the Roq's" Top 10 . 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, using his full name (Donnie Barren Holtzinger), he's been playing/recording lead guitar with various Seattle groups. He's also released an original collection of rock instrumentals ("Freedom") and various "Fresh Tracks" for use on TV and movie soundtracks.
