Joseph "Joe" Payne was born in Tampa, Florida in 1984. He is a heavy metal bassist and guitarist. Until 2011, Joe Payne played bass in the metal band Divine Heresy with Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares, vocalist Travis Neal and ex-Vital Remains and Hate Eternal drummer Tim Yeung.
Joe Payne joined Nile in early 2005 for the American and European tours after learning eleven Nile songs in only three days. In February 2007, Karl Sanders confirmed that Payne had been fired by the band in a posting on the band's message board1, stating, "I guess I have to spell it out. Yes, Joe is fired." Sanders did not go on to elaborate on the reasons for Payne's dismissal. Joe Payne is very close friends with film producer/musician Pascual Romero.
In late 2012, Payne and an associate were arrested in connection with an investigation into the distribution of more than 2,900 grams of marijuana.
