Robert Lamm was raised in Brooklyn under the musical influence of his parents’ jazz collection. The interest in music deepened in him when he became a member of Grace Episcopal Church in Brooklyn. At the age of 15, after his parents divorced he moved to Chicago, Illinois alongside his mother.

In 1967, he became the 6th founding member of Rock with Horns band, an experimental band that had soon “broken new musical ground, set trends, fallen into disfavor”, changed its name to Chicago and made its way into the history of the music. This engagement was a launching board for Robert Lamm’s music career, and also provided the basis for his overall net worth.

In 1969 their debut album “Chicago Transit Authority” was released, and as Robert Lamm was the songwriter of the majority of the songs and also “in charge” of pianos, organs, maracas, lead and backing vocals, he was unofficially named the band’s leader.

Since their beginnings, Chicago has released over 150 albums, including studio albums, live versions, compilations and even bootleg versions. Throughout his solo career, Robert Lamm has also released 12 studio albums so far.

Robert Lamm has served as Stanford University’s guest lecturer on music production, as well as a songwriting lecturer at New York University, adding somewhat to his income.
