As a teenager, Jon Carin started his professional musical career with the band Industry as their lead singer, keyboardist and songwriter. During his time with the band, they had a hit single with "State of the Nation" in 1982, being followed by the album Stranger to Stranger.
In 1982, 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, where he first played with Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour.
That year, Carin would collaborate as a musician and writer on Pink Floyd's A Momentary Lapse of Reason album, being credited as a keyboardist and programmer. He is a co-writer of the song "Learning to Fly" from that album, their first hit song since the departure of Roger Waters. He then 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. Two years later, in 1994, Carin played most of the keyboards, synthesizers, arranged and programmed for Pink Floyd's The Division Bell album. He also participated on The Division Bell support tour and was featured on the Pulse CD and DVD.
Carin performed with The Who, playing Quadrophenia in its entirety in the summer of 1996, at London's Hyde Park, which led to an extensive tour throughout much of 1996–97. 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, being produced by Carin.
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 has 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 performed with Pink Floyd at their reunion with Roger Waters on July 2, 2005, for Live 8 at Hyde Park. In 2005, a three-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.
