Shear was born in Pittsburgh in 1952. He attended the University of Pittsburgh. He had distinguished himself with the Pitt Glee Club where he led a special side ensemble called Wooden Music, which used acoustic instruments, in a foreshadowing of his "Unplugged" concept. One of his noted songs of the time, which he performed in concerts with the glee club, was "Always in the Morning." He left Pitt after three years in 1973, and headed to Los Angeles to pursue a music career.
