Paddy Mills is an award winning folksinger-songwriter whose songs are as salty as the Maine coast he calls home. Paddy has been spinning yarns and singing his tunes throughout New England and beyond for more than twenty five years. Having grown up a "wharf rat" in the small fishing village of Owl's Head, his songs are anchored to the imagery, characters, and traditions of that place. 

In 2013 Paddy won the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival Songwriting Contest as well as the Rosegarden Coffeehouse Performing Songwriter Competition. His 2014 album Race to the Bottom reached #6 on the Roots Music Report and #12 on the Folk DJ list; he won the South Florida Folk Festival Singer-Songwriter Competition, The Mid Atlantic Song Contest and the CT  Folk Grassy Hill Song Competition that same year. In 2016 Paddy was chosen to play at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist Showcase.

When he's not writing or playing songs, Paddy spends as much time as he can with his wife and four kids on the waters of Maine, messing about with wooden boats.
