Situated in Northern Ireland, Purple Mountain is an independent service specialising in production, coaching and development services for musicians and other creative people of all ages in education, public and private sectors. PM is run by Dr. Gary Bradley whose 30 year+ experience as musician ranges from performing across the UK to live sound for award-winning international artists such as Iain Archer and Steve Curtis Chapman. 

As a psychologist, he holds a BSc and PhD in psychology (QUB, 2003) and is a British Psychological Society Registered Personality and Ability tester (psychometrics). He lecturers part-time at the Southern Regional College in Armagh and is a director of My Back Yard CIC. His research experience (QUB, UU) has covered science communication, creativity, environmental issues, audio production, fire safety, youth transitions, arts research and health behaviour change.

When not doing that, he's often falling down something in the Mourne Mountains. Purple Mountain is so named after the purple heather that grows there. PS. I'm always up for coffee & chat so drop me line!
