Andrea True Connection

Andrea Marie Truden, better known as Andrea True (born July 26, 1943 and died November 7, 2011) was a singer and pornographic actress. In addition to her main pseudonym, she used several others during her film career including Inger Kissin, Singe Low, Sandra Lips, Andrea Travis, and Catherine Warren.
While her debut single "More More More" (#4 on the Billboard Hot 100, #23 on the R&B Singles Chart, #1 on the Canadian Singles Chart and #5 on the UK Singles Chart) became her most enduring hit, she scored other hits. Naturally, her songs were more successful in the discotheques than on mainstream Pop radio. True scored three more Billboard Hot 100 chart entries with the songs "Party Line" (peaked at #80), "N.Y. You Got Me Dancing" (her second biggest hit peaking at #27) and "What's Your Name, What's Your Number" (peaked at #56). The latter two singles were lifted from her second album titled "White Witch." In 1980, she released her third and final album titled "War Machine", a more hard rock-oriented album. It was released only in Europe, however was unsuccessful.

During the following two decades, True returned to significantly low profile life. True found success in other career fields as both a drug counselor and a physic reader. She was also a talented cook. True continued receiving royalties from her music. The song "More More More" remained a popular song on TV and movies. True received a renewed burst of publicity when the Canadian group, Len, sampled the instrumental break from "More, More, More" in their own hit single, "Steal My Sunshine." Subsequently, True appeared on several "VH1 specials including 100 Greatest Dance Songs in 2000 ("More, More, More" was the No. 45 greatest dance song), Where Are They Now and 100 Greatest One-hit Wonders (both in 2002), in which she said she wants to be remembered as a person who "gave people pleasure" — then emphasized the words — "with my music." She also made an appearance in the 2005 documentary movie Inside Deep Throat. It was at this time she briefly returned to performing her songs live in concert.

True died on November 7, 2011, at a hospital in Kingston, New York, located near her home of Woodstock, New York. She was 68 years old. A longtime friend, Louise Marsello Landham, said the cause was heart failure. In line with her wishes, True was cremated. She left behind no immediate family.
