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 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.’
