According to the singer's manager Jeffrey Pringle, Lennon co-wrote all the DEVIL'S GIFT songs with producer Jason Suecof (TRIVIUM, DEVILDRIVER, CHIMAIRA, BURY YOUR DEAD), "who not only produced the record but played the guitars. David Elitch (DAUGHTERS OF MARA) collaborated on the writing of a few tracks as well as playing drums on the record. It's the first time in Lennon's four-album career that she sat down to write a record from scratch in the studio. All of her prior solo releases she had written the songs on her own prior to engaging a producer."
