Andrea True (aka Andrea Travis, Inger Kissen, Ida King, Singh Low) is a true porn legend and one of the first major stars in the early days of hardcore. Born in Andrea Marie Truden in Nashville, Tennessee, she appeared in many short XXX films in Scandinavia in the 1960s. Following her American adult industry debut in the later part of the 1960s, she became a force to be reckoned with throughout the 1970s. Andrea specialized in playing the mature, experienced woman in her roles, being the sexually dominant performer when the part called for it. Seduction Of Lyn Carter features what is arguably Andrea's best performance in the United States, as a frustrated housewife.
Outside of her life in porn, she managed to have a singing career as well. In 1975, Andrea was filming a commercial in Jamaica when she recorded a demo of a song called "More, More, More." Remixed and released in 1976, the song became one of the disco era's most iconic hits, even reaching number four on the Billboard charts. It has been licensed for film use and frequently sampled (most notably in Len's 1990s hit "Steal My Sunshine"). Andrea True is currently the only porn star to have ever had such a successful hit song.
Finding it tougher to find work in the adult industry in her mid-thirties, Andrea even put in a bid at becoming a producer/director/star, which stalled. She ended up retiring in early 1980 at the age of 37. Sadly, Andrea True passed away in a New York hospital on November 7, 2011 at age 68.
