The Saddle Club hit the music indurstry with their first song, "Hello World" by popular demand after it was featured with the end credits of the show and they've been booming ever since.
"Hello World" did so well on the charts that the big money making people that we never hear about decided to get the girls going with an album, what else could the fans want? "Fun For Everyone" was realased in late 2001, and went gold after 3 months in stores, that means it sold over 35,000 copies!
The producers took that as a good sign, and the girls kept on going with the realsed on their second single "Hello World/Hey Hey What You Say" which were both featured on "Fun For Everyone" but surprisingly enough, "Hey Hey What You Say" wasn't sung by The

Saddle Club on "Fun For Everyone", in fact it was sung by two of the youngsters, Ashley and Melanie. The producers and obviously the fans loved it so much that soon everyone was singing it, and was soon it had sold over 50,000 copies on a single with "Hello World"!
They kept on rolling with a realse of a second album, "On Top Of The World" which has hit gold with a little help from their 2003 promotional tour.
To follow "On Top Of The World" was the series two favourite "Wonderland". Lisa, Carole and Stevie took the chance when they had it to sing at their favourite hangout, JB's on screen. The viewers loved it so much they had to hear it live at shopping centers across Sydney and Melbourne.
Now after the hit of Wonderland a third album is expected to follow along with to more singles!

Lynn Bayonas, Crawford Productions TV Producer for The Saddle Club:

Q. How did the saddle club girls become involved in making the albums?

A. Keenan MacWilliams who plays Carole was talking about her singing performances in Canada and the U.S. I already knew that Lara Jean Marshall, who plays Lisa, was a singer having seen her in Les Miserables on stage. And then Sophie Bennett, who plays Stevie, told me that she had had singing lessons as well. We decided that we would put a song into the show. Shock Records had been sending us songs they thought would be appropriate to use as background in the show, and amongst them was Hello World. I took the song out to the girls to see if they liked it and they thought I was suggesting it for the theme. Steve Levitan, our Canadian partner, also thought it would be a good them and so it was! We also had the girls sing it on camera in episode 18 of the first series and of course they sing it under the closing credits. There were so many requests for the song that Shock Records decided to release it as a single. And so it began...

Q. The Saddle Club has been a very popular TV show and its theme song Hello World became very well known with the fans. Is music an important part of the TV show and how is music used?
A. After the response to Hello World, we decided to make the singing part of the storylines. Keeping in mind that the show is about the girls' friendship and their love of horses, we didn't want it to become a 'girl singing group' show but we knew the interest was there from our audience. David Williams from Shock had a talented group of young composers come up with potential songs for the series and together with our editor, Bob Sprogis, we chose those appropriate to the drama (and some of course that were written specifically for a particular episode) as background Music and several times we used the girls singing on screen. One of our characters talks the girls into performing as a group at the local café and we got a terrific sequence out of that. And of course the girls loved the experience of recording the songs and performing them.

Q. What do you think saddle fans will enjoy about the saddle club albums?
A. We found from series 1 that our audience records the episodes and watch them over and over. The songs add to their enjoyment and judging by the fact that most mothers of girls aged between 4 and 8 can sing Hello World and Hey Hey What You Saythe songs on the show and the follow up albums have been very successful.
