As part of their review of Watchet Music Festival 2015, UK Festival Guides stated that:
'Opening the main stage on Saturday was the James Clode band, who stunned most of the people who had managed to be up by the crack of noon, and amble down to the site.

Reviewing the same festival, efestivals.co.uk said:
'Saturday sees the festival deliver on one of the main attractions of the festival in my opinion - new acts that impress. These include main stage openers The James Clode Band ...'
New Sound Wales recently favourably reviewed the band's latest EP release 'Set In Stone'.
DWF Media published the following review of the band's 2014 album release 'Citadel'.
