A woman of exceptional vocal talents, Daly has worked delivering singing telegrams and performing in a rock band. She once worked as a backup singer for rock-and-roll legend Chuck Berry.
A lover of many kinds of music, she has also co-produced a video documentary on Sunset Park, a country music mecca in Southern Chester County. She interviewed bluegrass patriarch Bill Monroe, plus Kitty Wells and Johnny Wright, Marty Stuart, Riders in the Sky and others.

Daly, was a columnist and poet whose “Rhymes and Ripples” column was a popular feature in the Evening Bulletin.
Molly is an avid birder, amateur naturalist, and fan of British folk-rock pioneers Fairport Convention, singer/songwriter/guitar god Richard Thompson, and English pop band XTC. A cat-lover,she also supports spay-neuter programs and the adoption of shelter animals.
