Waters/Kinley is a band from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, most often performing as a duo but also as a four-piece band, using the same name. Rob and Chris have been playing together in various guises since 2001, when Rob turned up to Chris’ open mic night at Wilders on Carliol Square, in the city centre.

AKA Rob and Chris from the Strongbow TV Ad
