罗南基汀是爱尔兰歌手，代表作是《When you say nothing at all》，从12岁时就开始写歌，和好友组过团，叫NAMESTE。曾经加入学校的合唱团，但被踢出来，因为合唱团的老师说他不会唱歌。进入BOYZONE时还在学校念书，刚成立时与团员晚上在校园和青少年常去的俱乐部表演，每天作二到三场的演出，一直的梦想是成为像TAKE THAT那么红的团员，直到成为BZ一员，成为主唱，他才真正找到自己心目中的理想事业。
1998年2月，BZ正在录制《WHERE WE BELONG》，他的母亲因乳癌去世。他几乎无法完成声音配唱的部分，RONAN写《THIS IS WHERE I BELONG》，唱出自己的成长心情。他后来设立Marie Keating Cancer Awareness Fund，致力乳癌防治。
2000年的7月，罗南推出了他单飞后的首张单曲大碟《Life Is A Rollercoaster（活得精彩）》。这首穿梭于流行及复古摇滚的歌曲是由罗南与New Radica（激进小子）主唱Gregg Alexanderl共同谱写的，充满了宜人的夏日风情，融合了流行与摇滚的曲风更让乐坛人事大声叫好，并被誉为“罗南最具突破性的代表作”。该单曲迅速打入英国单曲榜，直取冠军宝座。
随后推出的首张个人专辑《Ronan》让人们看到了这位偶像歌手超出偶像之外的音乐才华，在选曲方面也更倾向于更深层次的情感。除此之外，这张专辑更请到了全球顶尖词曲创作者和制作人的联手打造，从Madonna的制作人Pat Leonard，Bee Gees的Barry Gibb，到抒情摇滚王子Bryan Adams，可谓是强强合作，精彩纷呈。
在这张同名专辑《Ronan》中，罗南对演唱的处理都很到位，除了主打歌《Life Is A Rollercoaster》之外，专辑中的《In This Life》 、《If I Don't Tell You Now》和《Once Upon A Lifetime》等作品都让大家感受到他对音乐超人的理解和想象力。
轻松快意的开场曲《I Love The Way We Do》为新专辑揭开精彩序幕；深具感染力的快板流行摇滚曲《Love Won't Work（If We Don't Try）》中上口的副歌，势必成为演唱会中最佳互动曲；柔润中板曲《My One Thing That's Real》可以听见罗南让人耳目一新的全新唱腔；精致情歌《Time For Love》有着如丝绒般的高雅质感；由罗南和大名鼎鼎的爱尔兰作曲家Paul Brandy共同谱写的《The Long Goodbye》，先前已由美国乡村二人组Brooks & Dunn唱红，于全美乡村单曲榜上封王，这一次由罗南亲自演绎，恋恋不舍的情绪更教人动容；由情感丰沛的歌词酿成的首波抒情主打“If Tomorrow Never Comes”，被誉为电影《新娘百分百》主题曲《When You Say Nothing At All》的二部曲，透过罗南成熟性感的嗓音诠释，唱出有别于原唱乡村巨星Garth Brooks的款款深情，第二张专辑再次为罗南记录下个人事业的一座丰杯。
2003年，也是罗南自Boyzone起出道10周年，新近发行的第三张个人专辑《Turn It On/心动》中，罗南用自己颇为擅长的动人流行摇滚、贴心恋歌与情感丰沛的抒情曲风，为全新大碟注入了新鲜的口味，26岁的罗南更加成熟，始终保持着绅士般的迷人笑容，与谦虚内敛而善解人意的"新好男人"特质，在音乐制作上更是邀集许多流行音乐菁英，包括：the Matrix(艾薇儿的制作人)、Ricky Ross(Deacon Blue团员)、Paul Barry和Mark Taylor(安立奎的制作人)、Wayne Hector和David Franks(克莉丝汀的制作人)、Gregg Alexander(激进小子成员)，以及Rob Davies(凯莉米洛的制作人)共同倾力打造。这一次，“创作音乐的罗南”将首度真实的呈现在乐迷面前！除了两首老歌翻唱之外，罗南参与谱写了最新大碟中所有的歌曲，一首首纪录每个心动瞬间的抒情佳酿绝对扣人心弦！
《First Time》是罗南献给已结缡五年的妻子Yvonne的心情故事，深情歌咏两人历久弥新的真爱；美声小天后LeAnn Rimes（黎安莱姆斯）为《Last Thing On My Mind》跨刀合唱；感人催泪的《This Is Your Song》是罗南为了纪念因乳癌过世的母亲Marie的真情创作。此外，除了重新深情诠释Terence Trent D'Arby的《Let Her Down Easy》，罗南也翻唱了曾由知名乡村歌手Kenny Rogers唱红的柔情经典《She Believes In Me》！
2004年，推出《10 years of hits》个人精选。
2006年，罗南回归情歌基调，回到爱尔兰家中的录音室，将他对世界, 故乡，家人，歌迷的爱全数灌录到最新大碟《Bring You Home》之中。由曾为小甜甜布莱妮，安立奎，瑞奇马汀等巨星制作的流行乐金牌制作人Mark Taylor操刀，首支单曲罗南以沙哑嗓音重新诠释电影《X情人》主题曲《Iris》，并且远赴中东杜拜拍摄MV，增添异国情调。而专辑中最亮眼的则是罗南首度与环球音乐中文流行天后陈慧琳合唱的美丽情歌《All Over Again》,可谓珠连壁合,浑然天成! 该曲率先空降英国金榜Top6，为罗南个人生涯再加第30首空降Top10单曲。
