Jon Carin (born October 21 1964, in New York, New York) is a producer, artist and musician best known for his association with Pink Floyd, and more specifically its guitarist David Gilmour and former member Roger Waters over the last twenty three years. In the early eighties, he gained fame as the front-man for the band Industry. During his time with Industry, the band had a breakthrough single State of the Nation in 1983 and was followed by the successful album "Stranger to Stranger".


[Marks, Mary. [ "Jericho High School Alumni Hall of Fame Hosts the Sixteenth Annual Induction Ceremony"] , "Syosset-Jericho Tribune", April 28, 2006. Accessed March 3, 2008. "Jon Carin, a graduate of the class of 1982, was recognized for his accomplishments in the field of music. As a longtime member of the group Pink Floyd, Carin has mastered the art of producing and writing music, playing guitar, bass, keys, drums and vocals."] As a teenager, Jon Carin started his professional musical career for the band Industry as their lead singer, keyboardist, and guitarist. After the breakup of the band in 1984, he was asked by Industry's producer Rhett Davies to work with Bryan Ferry for his "Boys and Girls" album. Later in 1985, he joined Bryan Ferry at Live Aid to perform and met Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour.

That year, Jon Carin would collaborate as musician and writer for Pink Floyd's "A Momentary Lapse of Reason" album as a keyboardist and programmer. He was a writer for hit song Learning to Fly from that album, their first hit song since the departure of Roger Waters. He participated in the support tour for the album and appeared on the 1988 Pink Floyd double live album, "Delicate Sound of Thunder". In 1992, Carin participated for the recording of the soundtrack for "La Carrera Panamericana". In 1994, Jon Carin played most of the keyboards, programmed and arranged for Pink Floyd's "The Division Bell" album. He also participated on the "The Division Bell" support tour and was featured on the "P*U*L*S*E" CD and DVD.

In the summer of 1996, The Who, with a large backing group among them Jon Carin, performed "Quadrophenia" in its entirety for the first time in many years at London's Hyde Park; this lead on to an extensive tour throughout much of 1996/7. On August 16, 1998 he produced and played keyboards and drums for Pete Townshend for a concert to raise money for the Maryville Academy. In 1999, a CD of this concert was released.

Throughout the summers of the late 1990s and early 2000s, he was on tour with former Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters for his "In the Flesh tour". This makes him one of few musicians who have played with both Roger Waters and Pink Floyd after Waters' departure from the band. In October 2001, he performed with The Who at "The Concert for New York City", a tribute concert to the lives lost on September 11. In January 2002, a recording of the tribute was released on CD and DVD.

He was with with Pink Floyd and Roger Waters at their reunion on July 2 2005 for Live 8 at Hyde Park. In 2005, A 3-disc DVD recording of The Who's 1996 performance of "Quadrophenia" was released. He played with David Gilmour in the 2006 tour in support of "On An Island". From June 2006, he played on Roger Waters "Dark Side of the Moon Live" tour, with dates in 2007 and 2008.

Carin has worked with Amnesty International, Greenpeace, 4 Seasons of Hope for fundraising events playing with Seal, Elvis Costello, The Chieftains, Spinal Tap, and many others.

He produced, wrote and arranged Psychedelic Furs frontman Richard Butler's 2006 solo album called "Richard Butler" on Koch Records that was dedicated to his father, Dr. Arthur A. Carin. Carin played all of the instruments on the album, and produced and engineered the album as well.

Carin performed on keyboards, guitar and lead vocals with Roger Waters at the "Live Earth: The Concert for a Climate in Crisis" event on July 7, 2007 at Giants Stadium in New Jersey. He was also one of the performers on the Syd Barrett Tribute at the Barbican in London, performing with Roger Waters, the members of Pink Floyd (billed as Rick Wright, David Gilmour and Nick Mason) and Captain Sensible.
