Ronan从12岁起，就开始自己写歌，因为喜欢唱歌，曾和好友一起组过一个名叫Nameste的乐队，那时最大的梦想是像George Michael、Gary Barlow一样成为职业歌手以及一个优秀的词曲创作人。当Boyzone组成时，还只是在学校念书的学生。机会终于来了，93年Ronan还是一名在校学生，在参加一项名为“Ireland's answer to Take That”（Take That在当时红遍整个英伦）的试演会时，在众多参赛者中脱颖而出，与其他四个一样年轻的新朋友Stephen、Keith、Micky、Shane组成了Boyzone。凭着爱尔兰民族不服输的勇气和坚毅精神，Ronan和同伴们坚持不懈的努力换来了今天的成就。自成功打入英国市场后，不论是在专辑榜或是单曲榜上始终名列前茅，一时间Boyzone成为英国杂志封面和电视上最受欢迎的风云人物，所到之处均引起青少年的尖叫声和瞩目。 Ronan一直被当作这支当今英国最偶像团体的灵魂人物。从出道至今Ronan的独特魅力已为他带来无数奖项和荣誉，光是获英国“Smish Hits”杂志大奖颁发的“最受欢迎男艺人”就有8次之多，还有“最佳男艺人衣着奖”等殊荣。

With those dazzling poster-boy looks, Ronan Keating became one of Europe's most endearing stars as the leader of the Irish boy band Boyzone. The five Irish lads in Boyzone, who made their debut in 1993, built their charismatic style into one of the biggest European pop/rock acts of the '90s. But before he was winning over the world, Keating was a middle-class kid living in Dublin. Born Ronan Patrick John Keating on March 3, 1977, he was the last of four children in the Keating household. His father, Gerry, was a pub owner and his mother, Marie, was a hairdresser, so financially the Keating family was trying to make ends meet.
The working trudge instilled the desire to work in the youngest Keating. While working in a local shoe store, he noticed a search advertisement for an Irish Take That. The 14-year-old beat out 300 hopefuls with his own rendition of the Cat Stevens song "Father and Son" and was headed toward becoming a celebrity. Boyzone released four albums, every one debuting at number one in the U.K. They released 16 singles, each one also charting in the Top Three on the U.K. charts. Most notably, Americans will recognize this five-piece as the dashing young men singing behind U2's Bono in "The Sweetest Thing" video.
Six years into being part of one of the U.K.'s brightest and biggest-selling pop bands, Keating searched for an alternate creative outlet. He began managing another male pop group called Westlife. He married Irish model Yvonne Connelly in April 1998 and the following year they had a son, Jack. Musically, however, Keating's intentions stayed in tune with his internal spirit. He couldn't possibly steer clear of the media spotlight for long and something positive was bound to come of it. He recorded his debut solo effort in early 2000 under the craftsmanship of artists such as Bryan Adams and Barry Gibb. His sensual and childlike persona was full-fledged. He is a working songsmith with the utmost class, and counterparts like Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow might be considered a bit shy of such inborn grace. Ronan was issued overseas in mid-2000. A U.S. version followed in October.
For 2002's Destination, Keating collaborated with songwriter and ex-New Radicals frontman Gregg Alexander. This album was another smash overseas with hit singles such as "I Love It When We Do" and "I've Got My Heart on You," yet it failed to see a release in the States. Two years later, Keating issued Turn It On. His rendition of Terence Trent D'Arby's "Let Her Down Easy" and songs co-written with Deacon Blue's Ricky Ross were featured in another mature set from the former boy band singer. 10 Years of Hits followed in 2005. A year later, Keating released the studio album Bring You Home. In 2009, Keating released the heartfelt tribute album Songs for My Mother, which was dedicated to his late mother, Marie Keating, who passed away from breast cancer in 1998.
