About the editorial team:


Hannah Nepil is a London-based classical music journalist and critic who a few years ago was sent by The Financial Times to cover the Ice Music Festival in Norway. She came back with frozen tonsils, a voice like Marge Simpson’s and an idea: to set up a magazine devoted entirely to idiosyncratic events like this which weren’t being covered elsewhere. The result was The Cusp.




Daniel Calvert is a devotee of experimental art forms and sociolinguistics researcher. Based in Glasgow, he’s Head of Learning and Language Skills at CARAS.





Alice Baker is Social Media Manager for The Cusp. She is also a research analyst at market intelligence agency Mintel and writes reports on the UK food and drink market. Previously she has had articles published in the Financial Times, Time Out London and Psychologies, and has also worked with Hardens restaurant guides. Her interests include art, history, classical music, jazz, walking and pub quizzes.





Sam Pryce is currently studying English at University College London. He is Researcher for The Cusp, and reviews books and London literary events for BookSmoke.  He also performs in plays, musicals and comedy shows, most recently at the Edinburgh Fringe, and has a keen interest in experimental, minimalist and electronic music.
