Reared in Belleville, New Jersey, Crewe demonstrated an early gift for both art and music. Although lacking in formal musical training, he learned from many 19th and 20th century classical romantic composers as well as jazz and swing artists, including Stan Kenton, Harry James, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, and Tommy Dorsey. He studied for almost a year at Parsons School of Design in New York City with the intention of eventually pursuing a career in architecture.
