Former Reigate College music students Howard and Guy Lawrence, better known as dance duo Disclosure, have been nominated for four Brit Awards.
Having already been nominated for a Mercury Prize and gone to No1 in the UK charts with their debut album Settle, the Surrey brothers will now contest best single, best British group, breakthrough artist and best album at the Brits ceremony on February 19.
Having previously attended Reigate School, the pair worked on their craft in a studio above their dad’s auction house, Lawrences Auctioneers in Bletchingley, while Guy used to teach drums at Eric Lindsey music, just off Reigate High Street.
They aren’t the first dance stars to come from the historic market town either: Fatboy Slim aka Norman Cook (or Quentin as he was then) went to Reigate Grammar School.
