Coming from the artist and record side of the music industry, Robin Kaye first worked for Waylon Jennings in Nashville, eventually joining MTM Records as Vice President of Artist Development. After two years as an artist manager at Sound Management in Chicago, Robin relocated to Los Angeles and following a brief stint in music publishing, joined the Film & TV Licensing department at Universal Records.  Three years later, PolyGram Records hired Robin to integrate the music licensing divisions for their group of labels and she ran the combined Film & TV Division until its sale to Universal.

In 2000, Robin started her company SyncroniCity, initially representing labels and artists such as Andrea Bocelli, Kenny Loggins, Lang Lang, Donnie Osmond and Steven Bishop. Now SyncroniCity focuses strictly on music supervision for music intensive shows such as American Idol, which she has contributed to for the last eleven years. Her other shows include Lip Sync Battle, Hollywood Game Night, NAACP Image Awards, The Singing Bee, Miss USA, Miss Universe, American Inventor, Q'Viva , The Dance Scene, Dance Your Ass Off, Your Chance To Dance, Adventures of Power and Crashed. She is the active Vice President of the Guild of Music Supervisors.
