Andrea True "More, More More"

Andrea True (born in Nashville - July 26, 1943) moved to New York City in the early 70s to seek work as a movie actress, finding small parts in films such as The Way We Were. When conventional roles proved too difficult to be found, she began working in adult features under stage names such as Inger Kissin, Andrea Travis, Catherine Warren and Singh Low.

While working on commercials in Jamaica, she found herself stuck on the island due to political unrest. Wanting to make the best of the situation, she worked with her friend, record producer Gregg Diamond who had a song ready and True added the lyrics, creating the song "More, More, More" which became a favorite at nightclubs and discos, eventually charting at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 1976. She quickly followed that up with a full length record as the Andrea True Connection.

Andrea True pursued a music career with two more records, but further chart success proved elusive. Afterwards she then briefly returned to the adult industry.

Below is a video for "More, More, More" which was sampled in the 1999 song "Steal My Sunshine" by Canadian group Len.
