Mann wrote all of the tracks on Charmer, though two of them are collaborations: one with Paul Bryan and another with Tim Hiedecker.

It’s hard to remember sometimesÂ that there is usually an agenda behind the act of being charming, and that isÂ what I’m most interested in. Is someoneâ€™s charm being utilized just to try andÂ entertain people, make them feel special and interesting, or is there a moreÂ sinister purpose behind it? Sometimes I think â€˜charmâ€™ can just be another wordÂ for ‘manipulation.’
