Gene Norman Presents Records was founded in USA in 1954 by DJ and club owner (the Crescendo in Hollywood) Gene Norman. It initially had built up a strong Jazz and MOR/Pop roster. In 1963 Gene sold off his nightclub to focus solely on the recording industry. At this point the Crescendo name was added. GNP Crescendo's artist roster expanded to cover ALL types of music. 
The Australian arm of this label started out as releases on Decca, Vogue & Vocalion with a small credit to GNP Crescendo on the label.
The label disappeared along with a few other of Festivalís labels when Festival hit hard times.
