If I do freelance work for U.S. companies while residing in a foreign country, is that considered "foreign earned income for IRS purposes?

I know you are not my accountant. If I do freelance work outside the United States but I do all my work for U.S. companies/firms and receive all my payment from firms located in the U.S., am I still considered to be making "foreign earned income" which would qualify me for the foreign earned income exclusion (assuming I meet the foreign residence requirements).
