New Jersey native Crewe’s career began in the early 1950s, when he co-wrote a series of hits including Silhouettes for The Rays and Lah Dee Dah for Billy And Lillie, before releasing a pair of solo albums. In 1962, he teamed up with songwriter Bob Gaudio, and the duo began a famous collaborative relationship with Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons.
“The Crewe Foundation is extremely excited that this agreement will help to further promote and build upon Bob’s legacy,” added The Crewe Foundation chairman and president Dan Crewe. “The Reservoir team has shown a sincere interest in caring for this evergreen catalogue and we know it is in good hands with them.”
