She has voiced television characters such as Tommy Pickles in Rugrats and its spin-off All Grown Up!, Buttercup in The Powerpuff Girls, Rudy Tabootie in Chalkzone, and Isabel "Dizzy" Flores in Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles. She provided the voice for the title role in the live-action feature film Babe: Pig in the City, replacing Christine Cavanaugh.
In a 2000 article from LA Weekly, in reference to how she portrays Buttercup on The Powerpuff Girls, Daily says: "Spicy Buttercup is feisty. She's passionate about things, and a little bit aggressive -- I get to rage out every now and then. You have to be pretty contained a lot of the time and Buttercup sometimes gets a little leaky."
Besides doing voice-overs, Daily has acted in film and on TV. She played Sandy Burns on the PBS series The Righteous Apples from 1980 to 1981. In 1985, she starred as Dottie in the cult classic Pee-wee's Big Adventure. She also appeared on such shows as Laverne & Shirley, CHiPs, Fame and Friends. She was also in the video for Rod Stewart's song "Young Turks" as Patti, one of the runaway teens.
Daily created and performed a one-woman stand-up comedy tour about the ups and downs of her career and life.
Daily signed with A&M Records in 1985, working with Madonna's frequent collaborators John "Jellybean" Benitez and Stephen Bray. In 1986, that label released the R&B/Rock single "Say It, Say It". The song made it to #70 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the #1 spot on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. (Other versions of the song appeared as early as 1981). Her songs "Shake It Up" and "I'm Hot Tonight" were included in the soundtrack to the film Scarface. Those same songs were later included in the lineup of fictional radio station Flashback 95.6 in the Grand Theft Auto III video game. They were also included in the Scarface: The World Is Yours video game, based on the 1983 film. Her hit "Love in the Shadows" was featured in the films Thief of Hearts and Circuit.
Also in 1985, she provided back-up vocals for Human League front-man Philip Oakey's debut solo album, Philip Oakey & Giorgio Moroder. That same year she appeared in the comedy film Better Off Dead, singing two songs as a member of a band performing at a high school dance; both songs were included on the soundtrack album credited to E.G. Daily.
In 1987 she released the song "Mind Over Matter", which is featured in the film Summer School. Daily plays guitar, harmonica, keyboards, and percussion. In her 1988 song, "Some People", from her Lace Around the Wound album, produced by Lotti Golden and Tommy Faragher, she plays guitar and harmonica. She performed a song on The Breakfast Club soundtrack called "Waiting".
Daily released a song titled "Changing Faces" in 2003. The song was used on the end credits of Rugrats Go Wild. She also released a single titled "Beautiful" which she made available through iTunes on April 29, 2008. She also sang the song "Dawn's Theme", which was used at the end of the movie Streets. From 2003 to 2011, Daily did the voiceover of Jake Harper singing the Two and a Half Men song.
In fall 2013, Daily broke back into the world of singing as a contestant on the fifth season of the NBC reality show The Voice. In the blind audition broadcast on September 24, 2013, she sang "Breathe" from Faith Hill. Two of the four judges on the show, Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green, turned around their chairs for her. She chose to be on Team Blake.
Daily proceeded to win her battle in the shows battle rounds singing the song "Something to Talk About." She lost in the Knockout Rounds, with a performance of Bonnie Raitt's, "I Can't Make You Love Me."
Daily dated actor Jon-Erik Hexum of the television show Cover Up, and was dating him at the time of his death. Daily was married to Rick Salomon from 1995 to 2000. They have two daughters, Hunter (born in 1996) and Tyson (born in 1998).
