Mann wrote all of the tracks on Charmer, though two of them are collaborations: one with Paul Bryan and another with Tim Hiedecker. Bryan, a longtime friend and band member with Mann, produced the album.About the name of the album, Mann says on her website that she is fascinated with the concept of charming people:
It’s hard to remember sometimes that there is usually an agenda behind the act of being charming, and that is what I’m most interested in. Is someone’s charm being utilized just to try and entertain people, make them feel special and interesting, or is there a more sinister purpose behind it? Sometimes I think ‘charm’ can just be another word for ‘manipulation.’
